PISA SURVEY 2009

A survey taken to 500 000 students from 70 countries showed that high school students of Shanghai and South Korea are the world's best in reading comprehension, science and mathematics. The test was the well known PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment), developed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). According to Chester Finn former U.S. secretary of education, this is due to the nationalism of students and teachers to keep his nation as the world number one on all fronts and high school, college and university curriculum changes. Although Rosemary Pope educator at the University of Arizona recognizes the changes, she argues that in China most students learn using memory resources, distant learning of most students in Western countries: most creative and independent.

EXAMEN PISA 2009

Un examen tomado a 500 000 estudiantes de 70 países mostró que los estudiantes secundarios de Shangai y Corea del Sur, son los mejores del mundo en comprensión lectora, ciencia y matemáticas. El test fué el examen PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment), desarrollado por la Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Según Chester Finn ex secretario de Educación de USA, ello se debe al nacionalismo de alumnos y profesores por mantener a su nación como la número uno del mundo en todos los frentes y a los fuertes cambios curriculares secundarios y universitarios. Aunque Rosemary Papa educadora de la Universidad de Arizona reconoce los cambios, ella arguye que en China aun prima el conocimiento memorístico, distante del aprendizaje de la mayoría de los estudiantes de los países occidentales :más creativos e independientes.
