Pursuant to this post from yesterday comes the results of being a nation infested by superstition and invisible sky beings.
The OECD has just published their 2006 Project for Student Assessment, or PISA, results. The pdf of the rankings is here.
The US ranks "Statistically significantly below the OECD average" falling right between Latvia and the Slovak Republic.
In early December the more detailed report will be released at which time I suspect we'll find that US scores are lower in '06 than they were in '03.
