The Politics of PISA: The Media, Policy and Public Responses in Norway and England
Hopfenbeck, Therese N.; Görgen, Kristine
European Journal of Education, v52 n2 p192-205 Jun 2017
Using the PISA 2015 releases in Norway and England, this article explores how PISA has been presented in the media and how the policy level has responded to the results. England will be used as an example for comparison. The article presents early media responses from the 20 most circulated daily newspapers in the two countries and discusses them in relation both to the national PISA reports in Norway and England, as well as the international report of the OECD. The media responses are further interpreted in light of previous research in both countries, with a particular focus upon Norway, where previous Ministers of Education have been interviewed about assessment policy and education reforms.
