Norway’s school children performed worse in reading and science in the latest edition of the Pisa education ranking for OECD countries, and are also lagging a little behind their Nordic neighbours.
In Tuesday's release of the global 2018 Pisa education ranking, Norwegian teens regressed by 14 points for reading, while the science score was 8 points worse in 2018 than in 2015. For mathematics, Norway’s score improved by one point.
Meanwhile, critical thinking, practical work, digital judgement and the scrapping of a grading system for study of regional languages are elements outlined in a new school learning plan recently announced by the government.
We'd like to hear about your experiences. Do your children go to school in Norway? Did they previously go to schools in other countries?
We'll use your input in a forthcoming article which we hope will be helpful and informative for our readers.
