Nightly News with Lester Holt

Recommended Posts


Lester Holt: “Tonight, we dive into a new report released by the OECD. The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) released their global rankings on student performance. OECD uses a test called Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) which assesses reading literacy, mathematics literacy, and science literacy in 15 year olds across the globe. Singapore finished ranked #1 in all categories with Canada and Finland finishing high in each category. Now where did the U.S. rank on the PISA? The U.S. finished the ranking at an all time low. We break that down for you. Starting with mathematics the U.S. finished with a score 430 which is 40 points less than 2015 and ranked 49th in the world. In reading the U.S. finished with a score of 497 which is equivalent to 2015 and ranked 24th in the world. Finally in science the U.S. appears to have taken a drastic hit falling 50 points from 496 in 2015 and is currently ranked 41st in the world. Not the greatest day for the U.S. education system and many eyes now turn to Washington to see how President Macmillan and Congress will move forward on education.“
