The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development is initiating the International Early Learning Study, a cross-national assessment of early learning outcomes involving the testing of five-year-old children in participating countries. We use this colloquium to inform members of the early childhood community about this project and to raise concerns about its assumptions, practices and possible effects. We also invite readers’ comments, to start a process of democratic dialogue and contestation.
