CEE in the News: PISA Results Spark Media Dialogue

PISA 2012 Results CEE in the News: PISA Results Spark Media Dialogue

This summer, the OECD released the results of the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) exam in financial literacy, administered to 15-year-olds in 18 countries including the US.  As we previously reported in CEE In The News: US Teens Fall Behind in International Financial Literacy Exam, the results were somewhat underwhelming, with American students placing in the middle of the pack.  But encouragingly, the data has sparked an ongoing dialogue in the media, and continues to promote a national conversation.

Many of these articles have cited the Council for Economic Education’s Survey of the States in support of financial literacy; here are a few of the highlights:

Despite modest progress in implementing financial education over the past few years, American students performed squarely in the middle of the pack, far behind nations like China and and Belgium. But on the bright side, these results have helped shine a spotlight on the need for improvement: Associated Press and others have cited data from the Survey of the States as an important indicator and benchmark for progress.

CEE In The News: Economics Education ‘Moves Sideways’

The Wall Street Journal reports that while more U.S. students are taking personal finance or economics classes than before, many schools have yet to teach either subject. According to CEE’s newly published Survey of the States, high schools in just 24 states offer economics courses, while 22 states have an economics requirement, little changed from the most recent survey two years ago.
