Blank, Rolf K.; Dalkilic, Melanie
The Council of Chief State School Officers has established a system of state and national indicators for the condition of science and mathematics education. This policies report is based on a survey of all state departments of education conducted in the 1991-1992 school year. An introductory section provides the rationale and background for studying state education policies. The next section of the report provides 50-state information on the current state policies on graduation requirements, curriculum frameworks, student assessment, and teacher certification requirements. Thirteen tables are utilized to present this information. Two appendices describe efforts to implement state mathematics and science frameworks or guides in 1991. (Contains 25 references.) (MDH)
