National Mathematics Advisory Council


Continuing our riff on issues with mathematics education this week... yesterday the White House announced the formation of a new National Mathematics Advisory Council to advice the President and Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings on a range of issues related to mathematics education.

At least on the surface, this is a good sign that someone in DC "gets it." They even go as far as to liken this to similar efforts for reading, and to earmark money for research in how to improve mathematics education.
