Mathematics and Science Achievement and Course-Taking for College-Bound High School Students

This article from ACT examines how successful schools were at helping students achieve the standards set by the Goals 2000 project for mathematics and science education. By encouraging students to take a core curriculum in high school, high school faculty, staff, and administrators would be increasing their students’ achievement in mathematics and science. The authors conclude that attention needs to be paid both to identifying non-core takers and to motivating them to lay a foundation for future successes by taking a core curriculum.
