This publication monitors the performance of industrialized countries in meeting the needs of their children. Using data from two different surveys of students in twenty-four OECD countries, it presents the big picture of how well each country’s educational system is performing when measured by (a) what portion of students fall below given benchmarks of educational achievement and (b) at what point the lowest achieving pupils fall behind the national average.In addition, the publication analyzes league tables ranking the performance of rich nations against critical indicators of child well-being and discusses similarities between educational outcomes across OECD countries.
