A Shared Vision for Mathematics and Science Education in North Carolina.
North Carolina Univ., Chapel Hill. Mathematics and Science Education Network.
The North Carolina Mathematics and Science Coalition is a statewide organization comprised of education, public policy, civic, community, and business leaders. Coalition members work together in a forum to stimulate and promote efforts to implement systemic reforms in mathematics and science education in North Carolina. The Coalition's overall purpose is to focus the efforts of diverse groups into working together to bring excellence to mathematics and science education across the state. This publication of the Coalition's initial goals begins with a vision statement, followed by a list of the many stakeholders needed to help make the vision a reality. The list of initial goals includes: (1) involve all students in developing high learning expectations that foster improved learning, performance, and participation at all levels of mathematics and science, pre-K to college; (2) develop mathematics and science lead teachers who serve as resources, model teachers, and catalysts for change at the school and system levels; and (3) provide schools with teachers who reflect diversity, are prepared to teach mathematics and science, and are professionally committed to lifelong learning in these disciplines. Each goal description includes an explanation of essential components and a list of targeted outcomes. (PVD)
