    In PIRLS, Northern Ireland is outperformed by only four of the 45
    participating countries. The mean score for reading is not significantly1
    different from that of a further four countries, and is significantly higher than
    all other countries participating in PIRLS 2011.
    Pupils in Northern Ireland performed very well in TIMSS 2011 mathematics,
    significantly outperforming 44 of the 50 participating countries and being
    significantly outperformed by only five countries.

    Excellent results.

    Without being partisan: probably worth pointing out that SF has held the education department since 1998.

    Well done to the children.

    With high maths grades, the future of Northern Ireland's exciting civil service statistics industry is secure for yet another generation.
