Math Scores

US math scores for students 15yrs old came in at 24th out of 29 industrialized nations. Pretty said. This was on a test that scored ability to apply math in real life situations. Officials claim we do better at computative analysis. Hmmm...


The latest scores from the Program for International Student Assessment also show that white U.S. students scored above average, while blacks and Hispanics scored below it. That achievement gap has become the focus of federal education policy.

I thought we were told in recent debates that this gap was closing. Isn't that what the non-funded no-child-left-behind act was supposed to fix?
