According to the latest Program for International Student Assessment, known as PISA, a ranking of 15-year-old students from around the world found that students in Shanghai outscored kids from across the world in reading, science and math.
Students in the U.S. came in 14th in reading, 17th place in science and 25th for math.
Why are the U.S.'s efforts at reforming education failing, and what are Chinese students doing to succeed?
American Morning's Kiran Chetry speaks with Jonathan Plucker, with the Center for Evaluation & Education Policy at Indiana University, who has taken a number of trips to China to study their education system. He explains why China's students are beating the rest of the world.
