Big City Students Make Gains in Math and Science, Report Says


The National Science Foundation released this news item to publicize the "Academic Excellence for All Urban Students" report we posted in our July 7th What's New.

" 'This is not a complete analysis, but it is a good beginning for cities to gauge what can be done,' said Judith Sunley, NSF's interim assistant director for education and human resources. 'It takes more than 12 years to educate a young person for high school graduation, so it is a long-term process to evaluate complete system-wide change. But we are noticing that the longest-running, most highly-invested-in urban systemic programs are making the greatest gains in math and science achievements.'"
