Title:How does the United States stack up? International comparisons of academic achievement
Organization:Alliance for Excellent Education
Short Description:The United States has substantial inequities in achievement across the country, and international surveys show that the performance gap between the most- and least-proficient students in the United States is among the highest of all OECD countries (Kirsch et al. 2007).
Annotation:The United States has substantial inequities in achievement across the country, and international surveys show that the performance gap between the most- and least-proficient students in the United States is among the highest of all OECD countries (Kirsch et al. 2007). Despite the myth that other countries achieve only because they have small, homogenous student populations, data shows that many countries’ schools successfully assimilate immigrant or high-poverty populations that are proportionately larger than those in the United States. American schools, on the other hand, do little to mitigate the barriers that these groups face (OECD 2007b).
