What are your opinion on the quality of public schools in Canton Aargau? Also bullyi

As I was trying to collect as much information on the education system in Canton Aargau for future relocation purposes, it surprised me to find that apparently, according to the 2012 PISA report, the education quality (gauged by students' performance) in Canton Aargau appears to be behind that in other Swiss German speaking cantons. Having an almost school-aged child, this piece of news concerns me and I'm trying to figure out the reason for the Aargauers' lower-than-average performance.

Are there any EF-ers in Canton Aargau who'd like to share their opinion on their children education (i.e. public schools)? Did your children become disadvantaged when having to move to another Swiss German speaking canton? And what about their chances in getting into leading public Swiss universities?

Also, I read an old thread on EF of someone who highlighted the serious bullying problem at a public primary school in Aarau. Could anyone clarify this matter?

Thanks in advance

Surely if you have been to Aargua then you know the reason already...

Aye, trolling ye 'ere, too OK, let's not make enemies through giving wrong accusation. Let's play nicely now. No intentions to troll anyone, but Google Search led me to older posts on EF. Don't know why, for some reason, the stats counted the number of posts I've done isn't correct, as pointed out by NotAllThere below. Care to enlighten me?

Are these typical jokes that people who live in Zurich tend to make about people living in Aargau?

:
Those are the jokes which people everywhere in switzerland make about aargauer.

Aargau is quite big (on a swiss scale) with hundreds of schools and thousends of teachers. Each one has their strenghts and weaknesses. Im no sure if a list of experience reports can help you. Especially since you cant choose your public school (without moving to another village)
With the eidgenössische matur your kid can go to every public uni he/she likes. Althoug there are some limitations with studiyng medicine but this doesnt depend ond the matur.

Personally I think pisa is not worth the paper its written on.

This. It won't probably stick around for long, in the form it is, selectively, used.
