National Education Goals Panel (ED), Washington, DC.
The aim of the third National Education Goal is for all U.S. students to be competent in academic subject matter. The aim of the fifth National Education Goal is for U.S. students to perform at world-class levels in mathematics and science. The purpose of this report is to summarize the amount of progress that each state has made in raising student academic achievement in mathematics and science since the National Education Goals were established in 1990. The report contains four pages of information for the United States, each state, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories. The first three pages in each set measure progress toward Goal 3, using data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). The fourth page in each set shows how close each state is to achieving Goal 5. It is concluded that the majority of states participating in the NAE have made progress toward Goal 3. (ASK)
