US: Ingen resultatförbättring i matematik

Resultaten från USA:s återkommande nationella utvärdering av grundskoleelevernas kunskaper, National assessment of educational progress, NAEP, visar att de förbättringar som skett i matematik de senaste 20 åren nu tycks ha avstannat.

"Our students have made real gains in math over the past two decades, but for the first time since NAEP's mathematics test started in 1990, student achievement in fourth grade has not improved ... These NAEP results are a call to action to reform the teaching and learning of mathematics and other related subjects in order to prepare our students to compete in the global economy", säger utbildningminister Arne Duncan i en kommentar.
