Description: A National Science Foundation report finds no one at the helm of U.S. science and math education, with the result that students are exposed to smatterings of topics that vary regionally and encourage little in-depth learning. The analysis, released in 1996, is based on data collected from about 50 nations as part of the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS).
