The Lisbon Council had the privilege of hosting the European launch of PISA 2009, a ground-breaking OECD study on international student performance that put education squarely on the policy-making agenda around the globe. The latest findings and analysis from the PISA survey were presented by Barbara Ischinger, director for education in the education directorate at the OECD. The newly released survey indicates that Finland and Korea top the PISA assessment of education performance of 15-years-olds in over 70 countries; Germany is improving fast in reading and mathematics.
