Quartz – Jenny Anderson

“Since 2001, the Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLs) has tested fourth-graders —roughly speaking, 10-year-olds—around the world on how well they read. In the latest results, Singapore shines once again. On average, 12% of students in 50 countries and entities were judged to read at the highest,“advanced” level. 1 In Singapore, nearly 30% of kids are advanced readers, up from 24% in 2011. In the US, 16% of fourth graders performed at the top level, little changed from 17% in 2011.”(more)
