Systemic reform, by definition, requires a concerted effort on the part of many toward change. In an effort to continue to promote systemic reform in science and mathematics education, a 3-day conference provided the forum necessary for many to share their insights and concerns on the issues. A brief discussion of four components of the conference is provided: (1) issue sessions which discussed a variety of topics ranging in scope from the new role of technicians in our society to changes in the classroom; (2) theme sessions that considered the media, technology, undergraduate education and systemic reform, and measuring progress in the systemic effort; (3) 21 workshops; and (4) exhibits. Also included in this report are 6 briefing papers entitled: (1) "Indicators of Mathematics and Science Education" (Larry E. Suter); (2) "NSF's Programmatic Reform: The Catalyst for Systemic Change" (Joseph Danek, Roosevelt Calbert, and Daryl Chubin); (3) "Ohio's Statewide Systemic Initiatives: Lessons from the Trenches" (Jane Butler Kahle); (4) "Discovery about Systemic Change" (Ted Sanders); (5) "Issues in Rural Education and the Rural Systemic Initiative" (Wimberly Royster); and (6) "NSF Workshop Report: Learning and Technology in the Future" (Nora Sabelli and Lida K. Barrett). (ZWH)
