Being First in the World in Science and Mathematics: National Education Goal 4 and Students with Disabilities. Brief Report 5.
National Center on Educational Outcomes, Minneapolis, MN.
This brief report cites the grade of "poor" given to the United States educational system on the fourth of the six National Education Goals proposed by the President and the Governors in 1990. The fourth goal states that "By the Year 2000, U.S. students will be first in the world in science and mathematics achievement." The report then discusses this goal in relation to students with disabilities, addressing the topics of the lack of data on performance of students with disabilities, the emphasis on remedial instruction in science and math for students with disabilities, the low incidence of students with disabilities proceeding to postsecondary education in science or math, methods of monitoring science and math achievement, and information still needed in this area.
