More information on “Education at a Glance: OECD Indicators 2005" is posted by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

The United States lags behind more than 20 other industrialized nations on mathematics performance and problem-solving skills in a variety of academic subjects, according to a report by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

In addition, the Paris-based organization’s annual report ranked the United States ninth among OECD members in the percentage of 25- to 34-year-olds who have at least a high school diploma.

The report includes statistics on a host of other education measures, such as spending per pupil.
