The OECD published a new study based on the latest PISA test results from 2009, which concludes that on average, pupils from well-off socioeconomic backgrounds achieved 88 points better than their classmates who came from weaker socioeconomic backgrounds – a gap comparable to two years of study. Israel has the dubious honor of being one of the countries in which the gap is more than 100 points, alongside Argentina, the United States, Hungary and Dubai. (Haaretz)
