A Cross-Country Exploration of Math-Related Learning in the United States, England, and Singapore: Parent Perceptions and Practices Regarding Math Education During the Middle School Years

Abstract

"Raytheon Company has unveiled new research exploring parental attitudes toward math, parents' perceived math capabilities, and the level of active engagement in math-related learning among 10-14 year olds across the United States, England, and Singapore. While only 43 percent of 2010 U.S. high school graduates met the ACT college entrance exam "college readiness" benchmark, the study shows that parents can play a key role in helping their children prepare for math and math-related careers. However, the research demonstrates parents must be given the right information and tools in order to provide the required level of support."
