US, UK refuse to give students Pisa test on tolerance and fake news

I was quite surprised to learn that several countries, the two largest being the US and the UK will not allow their students to take one of the Programme for International Student Assessment (Pisa) tests.

It is the one that is designed to assess respect for other cultures, challenge extremism and help identify fake news. It addresses the type of skills young people need to navigate a world of "post-truth" and social media "echo chambers".

The UK's excuse is that they feel the schools already have enough to teach. Which strikes me as phoney, shouldn't that be a normal part of the existing school curriculum?

Quote:
The Department for Education in England said Pisa was valued for the information it provided on schools - and that schools would continue to take the other Pisa tests, with the results and rankings to be published next year.

But it said that "like more than half of the 80 countries" taking Pisa tests, it would not place an "additional burden" on schools with the new global competence test.

"All schools are already required to teach pupils to have a mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs," said a DFE spokeswoman.
They did not report any reasoning used by the US.

Sounds like brainwashing. Surprised that the UK and the US aren't mandating it, actually.
Thanks from Updike

Other cultures? Hmmm....? So why do Dumbocrats say all the time that we cannot send illegals back to their home countries? How freaking disrespectful of them!

Where is the respect for white culture amongst the left? LOL

I can not understand why all you people that are paranoid about your government and your security agencies don't all just emigrate.

How is this linked to brainwashing?

Which, as usual for your posts has absolutely the square root of sweet fuck all to do with the subject of this thread.

In this case you in fact don't get points for consistency.

Why RNG.....I'm surprised you didn't catch the brainwashing immediately. Here it is in big bold print:

The test will measure tolerance, cultural awareness and how well teenagers can distinguish between reliable sources of information and fake news.
It will consider issues such as racism, cultural identity and prejudice.


This nation will absolutely NOT CONDONE tolerance and cultural awareness. Now take your warm, fuzzy toys and go home.
Thanks from RNG

I don't think the UK has been so daft: though England has Scotland hasn't, and I don't know about my own Country of the Six Counties.
