Join us for a live webinar, PISA in Perspective: Cultivating Mathematical Mindsets, March 18 at 1pm ET. Register here.

PISA in Perspective: How Does the U.S. Stack Up?

In this webinar, hosted by NCEE in collaboration with OECD, education leaders from diverse contexts across the U.S. discuss the latest 2022 PISA results and their implications for U.S. education.

On February 8th, 2024 Andreas Schleicher of the OECD gave an overview of the results of the latest PISA exam, with an emphasis on the impact of COVID on student performance, U.S. results, equity, and parental involvement.

Then, moderated by NCEE’s Dr. Vicki Phillips, a panel of education leaders discussed the how the PISA findings resonated with their experience and in their education systems. Charlene Russell-Tucker, Connecticut Commissioner of Education, Dr. Christina Grant, District of Columbia State Superintendent of Education, and Jerry Almendarez, Superintendent for the Santa Ana Unified School District each spoke about where they are spending most of their time and energy to improve student outcomes, as well as the priorities and programs that are having the most impact on student engagement.

Watch the full video above. Slides from Andreas Schleicher’s presentation are available here.

And tune in on March 18th for the next webinar in our PISA series, when we will do a deep-dive into Mathematics teaching and learning.

Join us as we take an in-depth look at mathematics education around the world. Starting from the results of the 2022 PISA exam, with its focus on mathematics, we’ll explore:

  • lessons we can learn from countries who performed well in math;
  • U.S. performance in math, including why it lags and where there is room for hope; and
  • strategies and levers to improve math performance, including professional learning for both teachers and school leaders.

Most of all, we’ll look at what schools and districts can do to give students the kind of math education that will prepare them to flourish in an increasingly data-driven, technology-infused world.

Hosted by NCEE and the OECD, this webinar will feature a deep-dive into the PISA data with Andreas Schleicher. Then Vicki Phillips will moderate a discussion with our panel of experts and practitioners. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to dive into the data, engage with experts, and be part of the conversation for solutions.
