Title:Short sighted: How America's lack of attention to international education studies impedes improvement
Organization:Alliance for Excellent Education
Short Description:This report provides recommendations to the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Congress for immediately increasing participation in international comparisons that could boost student performance.
Annotation:This report provides recommendations to the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Congress for immediately increasing participation in international comparisons that could boost student performance.
