Mathematics and Science Education in the States MS Word PDF - This ECS StateNote identifies components of state policies most likely to positively impact teachers and students of mathematics and science at the high school level. The report notes exemplary state policies aimed at recruiting new science and mathematics teachers and strengthening the skills of existing teachers. The authors also indicate a number of state policies aimed at student success such as efforts to increase the number of students who take AP and IB science and mathematics courses; raise the minimum number of credits high school students need to complete in mathematics and science; reduce the need for remediation at the postsecondary level; and create programs aimed at improving achievement by low-income and minority students.
