Reading literacy among 15 year olds: an international comparative study
According to a survey carried out in May 2000 among students aged 15, the performance of French students in terms of their reading literacy is close to the average for OECD countries. Following this extremely generalised ranking of countries' performance, a detailed analysis of the results for France was carried out. It highlights the idiosyncrasies of the French educational system, and enables one to call these into question.
