MATH PERSPECTIVES
Research

"When teachers stop growing, so do their students."
-Susan Loucks-Horsley



The U.S. Secretary of Education’s Mathematics and Science Initiative was launched in February 2003 to:
  • Engage the public in recognizing the need for better mathematics and science education for all children.
  • Initiate a campaign to recruit, prepare, train, and retain teachers with strong backgrounds in mathematics and science.
  • Develop a research base to improve our knowledge of what boosts student learning in mathematics and science.
