‘Significant drop’ in Australian students’ maths rankings
The Centre for Independent Studies’ Glenn Fahey says Australian students have experienced a “significant drop” in their maths ranking.
“In 2003, we were among the world’s best; we’re now around the middle of the pack,” Mr Fahey told Sky News host Peta Credlin.
“Compared to an Australian student in 2003, today’s students are around 14 months behind in maths.
“So we’re falling behind compared to the rest of the world, but also compared to ourselves.”
