Bob Wise, President of the Alliance for Excellent Education, Reacts to Results of International Math and Science Exam
Bob Wise, president of the Alliance for Excellent Education and former governor of West Virginia, has issued the following statement in reaction to the results of the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), which compares U.S. student achievement against that of peers in more than fifty other nations:
“If the United States were in the international education emergency room, the good news is our vital signs, TIMSS scores, have stabilized. However, as we look around, all the other patients are getting better faster. It’s time to ask, ‘What do we need to do to catch up with the others?’”
