Students from the Philippines lagged behind other countries earning the lowest score in reading comprehension, mathematics, and science in a data shown by Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA).

Reading comprehension scored 340 points, the lowest score in the world. In math, PH students scored 353 points while science scores 325 which were both second to the last. Reading comprehension score is now one of the highest failure rates among participating countries.

PH's Department of Education welcomed the results, saying they would help the government establish its “baseline in relation to global standards, and benchmark the effectiveness of our reforms moving forward. The PISA results, along with our own assessments and studies, will aid in policy formulation, planning, and programming.”

DepEd promised to improve the quality of education in the country, it will review the K-12 curriculum, improve facilities, and train teachers and school administrators.

PISA is a study conducted by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) every three years to gauge middle school students’ educational attainments. The research, which measures problem solving and cognition abilities, serve as a reference for policymakers.
