The National Commission on Mathematics and Science Teaching for the 21st Century has issued its report on improving the quality of science and math teaching nationwide. The report, chaired by former Senator and Astronaut John Glenn identified three goals for improving mathematics and science education in the United States:
  1. Establishing an ongoing system to improve the quality of mathematics and science teaching in grades K-12.
  2. Increasing the number of mathematics and science teachers and improve the quality of their preparation.
  3. Improving the working environment and make the teaching profession more attractive for K-12 mathematics and science teachers.
The text of the report is available at http://www.ed.gov/americacounts/glenn . While the report recognizes the need for increased compensation for mathematics and science teachers, it does not recommend using federal dollars to supplement teacher salaries.
