Journalist notes


This goes on for pages and pages. I chose to focus on the global rankings for literacy, numeracy and problem solving skills by country. I brought in some of the supplemental information from the report where a country was discussed and explained. I did not go into the detailed breakdown because of diminishing returns, though if some one else wants to follow up, it might be useful. Page numbers are inline explaining where to find information. The lead is a summary of the body. There was a fair amount of supplemental material in the text and I tried to comment on that analysis. --LauraHale (talk) 22:18, 8 October 2013 (UTC)Reply


  • The sentence "For the younger generation of Australians, this is even more true." appears to me to be the opposite of what the report says. --Pi zero (talk) 03:37, 11 October 2013 (UTC)Reply
  • I was also unable to find support for "The report suggests that disconnects between literacy, numeracy, and problem solving for Australians may be a result of a large foreign-language speaking immigrant population." --Pi zero (talk) 04:20, 11 October 2013 (UTC)Reply
