Curricula should promote active learning, inquiry, problem solving, cooperative learning, and other instructional methods that motivate students. Student Assessment For purposes of accountability, states should develop new student assessments based on national content standards and state curriculum frameworks. These new assessments should test students' knowledge and understanding of mathematics and science in ways that are more co�plex and demanding than current tests. Teacher Education and Certification States should ensure that teacher education prepares new teachers to teach all children in accordance with the new national student content standards and the new state curriculum frameworks.

Conclusion In conclusion, we urge every parent, every school, school district, and state to insist: • On higher content standards for all students studying mathematics and science from kindergarten through high school; • On teacher preparation, inservice, and certification programs supporting the standards; • On a challenging K-12 curriculum that not only informs our children but inspires their understanding and enjoyment of the wonders and power of science and mathematics; • On the inclusion of all children, particularly those who have been historically under-represented, in a challenging curriculum every year; • And on fair and appropriate assessment instruments to measure student, school, and state progress toward this most challenging national education goal.
