OECD praises Turkey’s improvement in education

Yen Doran 20-Dec-2019

According to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) December report, Turkish students improved across all three tested disciplines — Math, Reading and Science — on the 2018 Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) tests.

The PISA exams assess 15-year-old students in 79 countries in Math, Reading and Science, releasing performance reports on a country-by-country basis.

Recently, Turkey has been among the countries which have been investing the most into education.

The country has been quite successful at moderating the gender grade gap in both Reading and Mathematics. As a result, the boys and girls in Turkey get very similar PISA scores in sciences.
