In May 2006, Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) President Valerie Woodruff and the Board of Directors commissioned the creation of a mathematics and science education task force to address a common set of concerns regarding mathematics and science education in the United States. The performance level of U.S. students on international assessments is substantially below that of students in many other nations. One-third of our high school graduates are not prepared to enter postsecondary education or the workforce. The number of U.S. students graduating from mathematics and science advanced degree programs continues to decline. The majority of our mathematics and science graduate students come from countries outside of the United States.
