G.Center Conf. Abs.: University support of pre-college education

"Can university math people contribute significantly to precollege
mathematics education beyond giving future teachers a few preservice math
courses?"

There is currently a lot of energy and talent and enthusiasm directed
toward an affirmative answer to this question. But, in the end, the
answer might turn out to be "No".

So what about all these wonderful new materials and in-service programs
developed and run by university educators and mathematicians? Will there
be any footprints left in the sand after the university folks go home, or
get tired?

We are still doing things to teachers or for teachers, rather than doing
things with teachers. We are also still thinking in terms of grants and
projects rather than institutional change (both in schools and
universities). If we continue to behave this way, there is the danger
that there will, in the end, be no footprints left in the sand.
