This document intends to guide school principals through a process for improving the quality of math and science teaching in schools. The project is guided in part by national standards in mathematics and science which provide a vision for student learning that includes a mastery of the basic fundamentals of the subjects complemented by a student-centered orientation to instruction. These standards promote programs that provide students with deep understandings of content, greater appreciation for the disciplines, and genuine experiences with the power of learning. This document presents the voices of past experience to help principals, the leaders of new school-based reform efforts, make decisions that will work most effectively for them. (KHR)
