MPR News Update, PM Edition for Dec. 6, 2016

Good afternoon! American students have a math problem. U.S. teenagers did not do well on an international test for 15-year-olds, with scores declining in math compared to 60 other countries. On a scale of 0 to 1,000, U.S. students scored a 470 on the tests, the Associated Press reports, dropping the nation to 35th on the list of nations. So, in other words, most students wouldn't be able to figure out what percentile the nation is in now, writes MPR News blogger Bob Collins. | Forecast
