Gains Among Students Whose Parents Didn't Finish High School

One interesting sign of academic progress on the latest "nation's report card" results came among students who are presumably at a pretty serious disadvantage.

Obama to Scientists: What Can You Do for Your Country?

A Rush to Calculus?

For many high school students who show talent in math, or at least a moderate degree of skill in that subject, their choice of a senior-year math course may not amount to much of a choice at all. They’re expected to take calculus, which they’re told will help them get into college, and succeed o...

Early Childhood Education and Science

Students—even very young students—bring a lot of curiosity about the natural world, and assumptions about how it works, with them to school. How can preschool teachers tap into this enthusiasm, and build students' understanding of science? Researchers and advocacy organizations have been ...
