“The 2022 PISA results released Dec. 5 show that Alberta continues to be a leader in education in Canada and around the world. Alberta students rank first in Canada in reading, first in Canada in science and second only behind Quebec in math.

“In addition to our impressive results nationally, Alberta students also perform exceptionally well against international competitors. Globally, we ranked second in reading, second in science and seventh in math, within statistical deviation.

“We should all be extremely proud of Alberta’s success in these assessments. I want to take a moment to thank teachers, staff and parents for their work in ensuring Alberta’s education system remains world-class and congratulate students for their hard work and dedication to learning. Alberta’s continued participation in international assessments such as PISA reflects our government’s commitment to benchmark Alberta’s education system against the rest of the country and the world.”
