Description

John Glenn, Commission Chairman In short, our children are losing the ability to respond not just to the challenges already presented by the 21st century but to its potential as well

John Glenn, Commission Chairman. This report makes only a few straightforward points, but it makes them urgently and insistently. First, at the daybreak of this new century and millennium, the Commission is convinced that the future well-being of our nation and people depends not just on how well we educate our children generally, but on how well we educate them in mathematics and science specifically. In short, our children are losing the ability to respond not just to the challenges already presented by the 21st century but to its potential as well. We are failing to capture the interest of our youth for scientific and mathematical ideas.

The basic teaching style in too many mathematics and science classes today remains essentially what it was . Goal 1: Establish an ongoing system to improve the quality of mathematics and science teaching in grades K–12.

The basic teaching style in too many mathematics and science classes today remains essentially what it was two generations ago. By contrast, teaching innovation and higher student performance are well documented in other countries, where students’ improvements are anchored to an insistence on strong professional development for teachers. What could be happening in . mathematics and science classrooms is markedly different. The report names an extensive set of characteristics of highquality teaching.

This report is potentially very important. On the other hand, it could have no impact whatsoever. Since then, we've had NSTA's SS&C, AAAS's Project 2061, the National Science Education Standards have been developed, TIMSS has unmistakably shown how far behind our students are, states have developed their own standards and are mandating assessments. But the key to real progress in science education, as this report shows, is teachers. We need better-educated teachers. Five billion dollars, spent wisely, could begin to make a difference.
