Paul Peterson and Eric Hanushek discuss their new study, which looks at how well the U.S. (and each individual state) is doing at producing high-achieving math students, as compared to other countries. The answer: not very well!

For more, please read “Teaching Math to the Talented,” which will appear in the Winter 2011 issue of Education Next and is now available online.

On November 10, 2010 at 12:30 pm, a webinar will take place at which the authors will discuss the study at greater length.
