Title: A Commitment to America’s Future: Responding to the Crisis in Mathematics and Science Education
Date: 2005
Business-Higher Education Forum
Report that documents the poor performance of American students in mathematics and science relative to other nations, and recommends a four-point strategy for ensuring that all students have a solid grounding in those subjects. The authors suggest: (1) establishing a P-16 education council in each state; (2) simultaneously addressing and aligning the five P-12 system components (content standards, curricula, assessments, teacher preparation and accountability); (3) engaging business and higher education in more effective P-12 reform roles; and (4) implementing coordinated national and state-specific public information programs.
