I samband med firandet av Internationella kvinnodagen 100 år, den 8/3, har OECD gjort en uppsummering av vad senaste PISA-studien säger om könsskillnader i läsning, matematik och naturvetenskap.
Girls outperform boys in reading in every country that participated in the 2009 PISA survey; and in OECD countries, the average gender gap in reading proficiency represents about a year’s worth of schooling. While boys score higher in mathematics in more than half of the participating countries and economies, in 25 countries there is no difference in mathematics performance between boys and girls, and in five countries, girls have slightly higher scores in mathematics. The gender gap is narrowest in science, where in most participating countries, there is no significant difference between girls’ and boys’ performance. Across the three subjects covered by PISA, reading, mathematics and science, and across all participating countries and economies, girls are as likely to be top performers as boys.
