Another round of international test results have been released, and once again, U.S. performance is mediocre.

In this report for PBS NewsHour, Education Week correspondent Kavitha Cardoza asks students from other countries attending U.S. schools to compare the academic rigor and balance of school activities. How are educational priorities different in this country? This video aired on PBS NewsHour on December 13, 2016.
