A Proposal To Improve Science Education in the Public Schools.
McCallister, Gary
American Biology Teacher, v64 n4 p247,249 Apr 2002
Explains how student testing in the U.S. as well as around the world such as the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) has been used for the evaluation of educational systems. Reports on America's trend of success in third grade and failure at higher grade levels, and discusses the importance of "how teachers teach" rather than teachers' understanding of the subject. (YDS)
