Getting Dumber in School?
Bracey, Gerald W.
Principal Leadership, v1 n7 p58-63 Mar 2001
Factors contributing to American students' declining scores on the TIMSS (Third International Mathematics and Science Study) between grades 4 and 8 include textbook size and U.S. educators' traditional views of middle-school years. Bad data probably invalidate claims about the grade 8 to 12 decline. International reading scores favor Americans. (Contains 18 references.) (MLH)
