The author comments on the comparative student performance data released in December 2007 by the Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development (OECD). The OECD comprises the 30 biggest industrialized economies, but for purposes of this study the data included measures of science, math and reading in secondary schools in other jurisdictions as well. What stands out, however, are the high marks of East Asian jurisdictions across all three course areas. Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan are consistently bunched at or near the top.
