The Dynamics of World Culture in Education: Emerging Patterns in the Discussion of PISA results in Germany and Sweden since 2000

Abstract [en]

The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has been running

the Programme of International Student Assessment (PISA) for almost twenty years and is

widely recognised as an influential actor in education policy internationally. Much research

investigates the extent to which the OECD’s education policy recommendations are

implemented. However, the parliamentary process that mediates the space between the PISA

studies and consequent school reforms is less well understood. This thesis tracks the mention

of ‘PISA’ in parliamentary debates in Sweden and Germany between 2000 and 2018 and applies

content analysis to identify changes within and between the two countries over time. The data

shows that in both parliaments, the PISA studies are received largely without questioning the

underlying methodology or test design. Members of parliament mostly refer to PISA as an

‘objective piece of evidence’ that supposedly captures the current state of the education system.

PISA is also mentioned to discredit political opponents by blaming them for poor results.

Understanding how members of parliament discuss PISA is important to explaining PISA as a

phenomenon and contributes to a growing body of research concerned with the influence of the

OECD on national education policy borrowing and lending.
