Math Commission Seeks Ideas

You are invited to share your ideas on ways to ensure high quality teaching
in mathematics & science at all grades in a discussion forum hosted by the
National Commission on Mathematics & Science Teaching for the 21st Century.
At the website of the Commission, which is chaired by former Senator &
astronaut John Glenn, you can watch (or read) presentations from Commission
meetings, post comments about what you heard, & see what other visitors
have to say.

The Glenn Commission is preparing a report for Secretary Riley in the fall
of 2000 that will include recommendations & strategies to help ensure that
an adequate supply of highly skilled individuals enter & remain in the math
& science teaching profession. The recommendations will also help make
certain that throughout the span of a teacher's career, he or she has the
opportunity to learn, generate, accumulate, & share knowledge about math &
science content & teaching methods.
