A State of Disconnectedness: An Examination of Mathematics & Science Instruction in the North Carolina Public Schools.
Public School Forum of North Carolina, Raleigh.
For over a decade the Public School Forum of North Carolina has used a study group approach that employs the Forum's Board of Directors as a research team that works with others invited to participate in examining major problems facing North Carolina's schools. A request from the Glaxo Foundation led to the Forum's sixth major Study Group. This report contains the results of an investigation into mathematics and science instruction in North Carolina public schools. Findings indicate that while students in North Carolina are much improved in the areas of mathematics and science, they are still lagging in comparison to young people around the world. The study is offered to concerned policymakers, educators and business leaders in the hopes that key recommendations will make a major contribution to education in North Carolina. (Author/ASK)
