Education Next’s Paul Peterson and Chester E. Finn, Jr. discuss a new study finding that U.S. schools are producing a smaller percentage of high-achieving math students than are schools in many other countries.

For more on this topic, see “Teaching Math to the Talented,” by Eric A. Hanushek, Paul E. Peterson and Ludger Woessmann, which appears in the Winter 2010 issue of Education Next.

For further details, see the full report: “U.S. Math Performance in Global Perspective: How well does each state do at producing high-achieving students?

    hi, could Education Nest please provide the English subscripts at the bottom in your videos, just like what TED has done in their online videos? I think the subscripts will help people, who come from other countries and concern on the same issues you discussed to easily capture and understand the key information you offered. Also it will expand the PEPG’ influence globally. Thank you!
