||Aptitude Revisited: Rethinking Math and Science Education for America's Next Century
||The Johns Hopkins University Press
||American students' dwindling aptitude in math and science have become newsworthy lately, often culminating in debates about test scores. Author David Drew reiterates the concern that American youth is not being prepared for an emerging, competitive international market. Based on his research, Drew argues that the poor, minority students, and young women are not encouraged in mathematics, thus widening the gap between the under and over classes. His recommendations challenge superficial political arguments with potentially valuable solutions.
