With thanks to Prometheuswrites, who commented on the following BBC News report. The PISA 2009 results are now available on their website. For the UK, key highlights of the report include:

  • Mean performance of United Kingdom 15-year-olds in the middle of the rankings

  • Only seven OECD countries spend more per student than the United Kingdom

  • Parents in the United Kingdom are better educated than in many other countries

  • The share of students from disadvantaged backgrounds in the United Kingdom is well below average.

  • Among OECD countries the United Kingdom has a relatively large proportion of students with an immigrant background
