What Schools Can Do To Improve Math and Science Achievement by Minority and Female Students.
Office for Civil Rights (ED), Washington, DC.
In 1991, the President announced America 2000, a complex and long-range plan designed to move every community toward the six national education goals. Consistent with this, the Office for Civil Rights instituted a National Enforcement Strategy designed to help protect equal educational opportunity for all students. This pamphlet has been prepared principally for elementary and secondary school teachers, counselors, and administrators who serve in school systems that have programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance. It reviews survey data concerning the representation of minority and female students in math and science courses at the elementary and secondary level and attainment of postsecondary degrees in these academic disciplines. Also, information is provided, based on research findings and experience gained to date, on ways for improving interest and achievement in math and science on the part of minority and female students.
