We’ve reached a plateau. We have tough standards, but need to push hard to reach the next level required in the global economy.

The Global Landscape Is Shifting…

  • “The long-term opportunities and challenges that the flattening of the world puts before the United States are profound. Therefore, our ability to get by doing things the way we’ve been doing them – which is to say not always enriching our secret sauce –

  • will not suffice any more.”

  • – Thomas Friedman, The World Is Flat

... With Clear Implications for Maine

“Demographic change is raising education levels and accelerating population growth … but many workers remain unprepared for tomorrow’s jobs”

As maine goes so goes the nation

As Maine Goes, So Goes the Nation

#1 article in The New York Times from November 13, 2006

“The Seattle level of concern about math may be unusual, but there’s now an enormous amount of discomfort about fuzzy math on the East Coast, in Maine, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania, and now New Jersey is starting to make noise,” said R. James Milgram, a math professor at Stanford University. “There’s increasing understanding that the math situation in the United States is a complete disaster.”

The frenzy has been prompted in part by the growing awareness that, at a time of increasing globalization, the math skills of children in the United States simply do not measure up: American eighth-graders lag far behind those from Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan and elsewhere on the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study, an international test.
