The OECD unveils its PISA 2018 report on Tuesday, which has evaluated 15-year-old students from 79 countries in Reading, Mathematics and Science, although in Spain only the data of the last two subjects will be published when "anomalies" have been detected in some answers of reading comprehension.
This study has been published every three years since 2000 and does not usually yield good data for Spain, since we tend to be below the OECD average and, in addition, there are quite a few differences by autonomous communities.
The Community of Madrid has opined that the OECD should not publish on this occasion the full report of Spain because everything is "contaminated".
For his part, the Minister of Education of Andalusia, Javier Imbroda, has been critical of PISA, although he has acknowledged that in educational matters "nobody wants to be left behind, because nobody likes to have a red face."
However, the Minister of Education of Castilla y León, Rocío Lucas, said about PISA: "we give full validity, as it always has been, to a test that is serious and reliable."
The Minister of Education, Isabel Celaá, has been contrary to the Madrid request that PISA 2018 not be made public.
This edition of PISA corresponds to the first one carried out after the implementation, in the 2016-17 academic year, of the Lomce to the fourth year students of Compulsory Secondary Education (ESO).
