Global academic achievement tests were recently reconstructed and the new forms administered in 2000, 2003, 2006, and 2009 to increasing numbers of countrie’s 15-year-olds. The Organisation for Economic Co-operation & Development tests for the 2009 testing period were released in early December 2010.  These 15-year-olds (usually 9th or 10th grade in the US) showed something interesting in the 2009 results. 

Shanghai, China is a large city, but taken as a region, it is home to students that scored highest in all three subjects assessed. They beat every other country in Overall Reading, Mathematics, and Science.
