How to turn education into fascist science.
The important thing about using PISA tables for 'measuring' relative performances of countries' educations is that it disconnects education from the respective societies. This way, 'education' can be framed or re-described as a neutral commodity or element in 'competitiveness' as if 'how we live' or 'how we are' has nothing to do with what we want or need. This is exactly how fascist science works - disconnect it from any sense of social responsibility.
