Math Matters: MDRC's Projects in Math for Low-Income Students, from Preschool to College
MDRC
In an increasingly technological world, developing basic math skills is crucial. Headlines regularly be-moan the international ranking of American students on math proficiency, and students from low-income families do worse in math than their more affluent peers. The federal Bureau of Labor Statistics projects that employment in occupations related to science, technology, engineering, and math is only going to grow in the coming decades. What can be done to promote more effective math education? This two-page document describes several projects that MDRC has developed over the past several years--from preschool to postsecondary education- that seek to improve the performance of low-income students in math.
