Over the past decade, Americans have become increasingly concerned about the educational and academic achievements of U.S. students, particularly at the primary and secondary levels. Numerous high-level commissions, composed of leaders from government. education, and business, have examined the schools, and most recently, state governors and Administration officials, including President Bush, met at the “Education Summit” to discuss needed reforms. Improving the education of U.S. students has risen to the top of the public agenda.
