Daily round-up: Teens from Asian nations dominate test, zero tolerance in the hot seat

Teens from Asian countries dominate in global assessments (AP): Fifteen-year-olds from several Asian countries outperformed their American peers in the 2012 Program for International Student Assessment, or PISA. U.S. students failed to crack the top 20 in math, science or reading, according to scores released today. Education Secretary Arne Duncan called the results “a picture of educational stagnation.”

Some schools back away from zero-tolerance discipline policies (The New York Times): Amid increased evidence that zero-tolerance policies lead to higher dropout rates and low academic performance, urban districts from Baltimore to Denver are rethinking discipline policies and opting to let misbehaving students stay in class.

In LA, new models emerge for getting parents involved (Los Angeles Times): Community and civil rights groups are stepping up to help get parents involved in LA’s education system, with many specifically targeting immigrant parents.
