  • Too many students were excluded from 2018's PISA test and the government was too passive in reacting to that problem, a report from the National Audit Office finds.
  • It says 11 percent of students did not take the test (the exclusion limit is 5 percent), painting an inaccurate picture of school performance.
  • Education Minister Anna Ekström said schools didn't fully understand the rules on excluding students.
