Education Systems International
Strong Performers and Successful Reformers in Education: Shanghai, China
"A video series [including a written report] profiling policies and practices of education systems that demonstrate high or improving performance in the PISA tests." An additional report compares the People\'s Republic of China to the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong.
"This series of videos has been produced jointly by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the Pearson Foundation to present initiatives being taken by education authorities around the world to help improve the learning performance of their secondary school students. The school systems featured in these videos were chosen for their strong performance in the OECDâ€™s Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), a three-yearly evaluation of secondary students in reading, mathematics and science."
The Pearson Group is a "British multinational publishing and education company" and the "largest education company and the largest book publisher in the world" (Wikipedia English, as of 05.08.2013). [Abstract: Site editorâ€™s information supplemented by editors of Education Worldwide]
