Children's Lives and Academic Achievement in Canada and the United States.
Gaffield, Chad
Comparative Education Review, v38 n1 p36-64 Feb 1994
The quite average performance of children in Canada and the United States on the International Assessment of Educational Progress is consistent with the foundations of school systems in both countries, which emphasize a sociocultural rather than academic purpose. Recent changes in Quebec stress education for academic reasons, with resulting improvements in achievement. (KS)
