2007 Trends in International Math & Science Study

“Today’s TIMSS results show that Massachusetts students and teachers can match up with world’s best in math and science,” said Christopher R. Anderson, Massachusetts High Technology Council president and former Massachusetts Board of Education chairman.  “This dramatic improvement in ranking from 1999 is a resounding endorsement of education reform, and the increased accountability, standards and competition it has delivered to school districts across Massachusetts.  Math and Science are the 21st century skills that drive technological innovation and as we continue to improve we must not backslide on the remarkable progress made under education reform.”
