Andreas Schleicher (born 1964 in Hamburg) is a German statistician and researcher in the field of education. He is the Division Head and coordinator of the OECDProgramme for International Student Assessment (PISA) and the OECD Indicators of Education Systems programme (INES). He is known for his harsh critique of the German educational system, especially regarding the early selection of students and the multiple tier school system.
From 1993 to 1994, Schleicher worked at the International Association for Educational Achievement at the Institute for Educational Research in Holland. In 1994 he became project manager at the Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI) of the OECD in Paris. He began to develop the PISA study there in 1995. In 1997 he became leader of the OECD's Indicators and Analysis Division, Directorate for Education. In 2001 he presented the first PISA study. Since 2002 he is responsible for the PISA program and takes part in other educational research. In June 2012, Schleicher gave a TED Talk showing the use of PISA data in identifying the impact of policy changes related to teacher pay, extended educational time, and professional development and changes in educational performance.
