D'Ambrosio, Ubiratan; And Others
The urgency to enhance the quality of science education for all of the nation's children and youth increases as we approach the next century. To address some of the issues and to obtain insight from a variety of sources regarding the problems facing educators in science, mathematics, engineering, and technology education, a Summer Symposium was held with a small group of respected international scholars attending. The Summer Symposium concluded with an all-day invitational meeting that involved the symposium team of international scholars, a select group of U.S. science and mathematics educators invited to critique the scholars' draft report, and invited guests from professional associations and Government agencies responsible for science, mathematics, engineering, and technology education. This report contains several recommendation in order to meet the needs of a technology-oriented, information-driven society. (ZWH)
