December 4, 2013

MEXICO CITY – According to a report by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Mexican children age 15 and below improved in reading and mathematics in 2012 — although they lag well behind the global average.

The evaluation of each country is based on the International School Evaluation Program (PISA), which tests mathematics, science and reading scores.

“Remaining at the same improvement rate, it will take 25 years for Mexico to reach the OECD average in mathematics and over 65 years for reading,” read the report.

The study found that mathematics scores in Mexico have risen from 385 points in 2003 to 413 in 2012, the third biggest improvement after Brasil and Tunisia. This was also the best score in Latin America, with 391 in Brazil, 388 in Argentina, 376 in Colombia and 368 in Peru.

From 2003 to 2012, the number of 15 year old Mexicans registered in formal education rose from 58 percent to about 70 percent, however this number is still the third lowest of all OECD countries.
