Center on Reinventing Public Education, 2018
The Citywide Education Progress Report looks at how a city is doing across three goals: (1) The education system is continuously improving; (2) All students have access to a high-quality education; and (3) The education strategy is rooted in the community. Across each goal it presents indicators of what the city is doing and how it is doing. The…

McKibben, Sarah – Education Digest: Essential Readings Condensed for Quick Review, 2009
While 8th grade algebra was once reserved as a course for the gifted, today, more U.S. 8th graders take algebra than any other math course. This article discusses a report from the Brookings Institution which chronicles the history of the 8th-grade algebra surge and its impact on today's low-performing students. The report indicates that many of…

Morales-Chicas, Jessica – ProQuest LLC, 2016
This dissertation investigated whether math course sequence from 8 th to 9th grade influenced 9th grade math motivation, defined as perceived competence in math, sense of belonging in math, importance of math, and math anxiety. Two competing hypotheses were proposed suggesting that a more accelerated math curriculum (Algebra 1 in 8th grade versus…

Su, Hui Fang Huang; Ricci, Frederick A.; Mnatsakanian, Mamikon – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2016
A teacher that emphasizes reasoning, logic and validity gives their students access to mathematics as an effective way of practicing critical thinking. All students have the ability to enhance and expand their critical thinking when learning mathematics. Students can develop this ability when confronting mathematical problems, identifying possible…

Parke, Carol S.; Keener, Dana – Educational Research Quarterly, 2011
The purpose of this study is to compare multiple measures of mathematics achievement for 1,378 cohort students who attended the same high school in a district from 9th to 12th grade with non-cohort students in each grade level. Results show that mobility had an impact on math achievement. After accounting for gender, ethnicity, and SES, adjusted…

Achieve, Inc., 2013
A common argument against raising math course-taking requirements for all students is that it will cause more students to drop out of high school. But most students who drop out for academic reasons do so not because they are being "too challenged," but rather because they are not being challenged enough. It is important to raise the rigor and…

Figlio, David N.; Özek, Umut – National Bureau of Economic Research, 2019
In this study, we use microdata from 12 Florida county-level school districts and a regression discontinuity design to examine the effects of early grade retention on the short-, medium-, and long-term outcomes of English learners. We find that retention in the third-grade substantially improves the English skills of these students, reducing the…

Wagner, Paul A. – Interchange: A Quarterly Review of Education, 2021
With mathematics education dominated by practices of standardized test alignment, the quest for mathematical understanding is adrift despite so much talk about the importance of STEM subject matters. To add to the confusion there has long been worries among educators about any curricular programs or instructional practices that can be labeled…

Kang, Rui; Skinner, Felicia; Hyatt, Charles – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
African American students have been systematically discouraged from taking advanced courses in science and math. In addition, low Advanced Placement (AP) exam passing rates among African American students raise further concerns regarding whether accessibility alone adequately addresses the issue of equity. However, little research has been…

Paik, Sunhee; Shim, Woo-jeong – Asia-Pacific Education Researcher, 2013
In South Korea, academic high school students are placed in either the "Munka" (foreign characters omitted) track or the "Yika" (foreign characters omitted) track. Both the tracks diverge greatly in their mathematics and science curricula. Advanced math and science subjects are only taught in "Yika." For this reason,…

Tennessee Department of Education, 2015
The Tennessee Department of Education explored course enrollment patterns in an effort to better understand in which courses students are enrolling and whether course enrollment policies and procedures are promoting students' interests. This report focuses on eighth grade Algebra I enrollment, which can propel students to take more rigorous math…

Swanson, Elise – ProQuest LLC, 2019
Postsecondary access and degree completion are increasingly important concerns for individuals and policymakers. This dissertation presents evidence on three distinct strategies for increasing students' level of preparedness for higher education, rates of postsecondary enrollment, and rates of postsecondary degree completion. The first is an…

Joensen, Juanna Schroter; Nielsen, Helena Skyt – Journal of Human Resources, 2009
In this paper, we exploit a high school pilot scheme to identify the causal effect of advanced high school math on labor market outcomes. The pilot scheme reduced the costs of choosing advanced math because it allowed for a more flexible combination of math with other courses. We find clear evidence of a causal relationship between math and…
