About this project
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 OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), a three-yearly evaluation of secondary students in reading, mathematics and science.
