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.
