[NSTA] Science Education in the News

National Survey Finds Most Parents Okay with Children's Science, Math Education

Amid urgent calls from leaders in business, government, and science to boost achievement in science and math, a Public Agenda survey of over 1,300 parents and students taken between October and January finds that parents' concern about math and science achievement has actually declined since the mid-1990s and that most believe the amount of math and science that students receive is "just about right

While parents support proposals to make high schools globally competitive, 32% said their child's school should be teaching more science and math, and 57% said things were fine as is. Only one quarter of the students surveyed say lack of emphasis on science and math is a problem in their own school: 4 in 10 students surveyed say they would be "quite unhappy if they ended up in a career with a math or science focus.?

"Despite parents' lip serve agreement that U.S. schools should be competitive, proposals to increase math and science coursework for their own kids should come as something of a surprise,"says Public Agenda. "As leaders in government, business and education move forward to address this issue, as they build a strong leadership consensus to act, they may be well advised to reach out to parents and students directly as well. Based on this research, they have one more agenda item to add to their list-helping American families understand the economic and educational challenges the country faces and involving them in strategies to find effective solutions."
