"This report cites momentum gained and renews the call to do school differently. In the two years since the release of The Opportunity Equation: Transforming Mathematics and Science Education for Citizenship and the Global Economy the report has served as a call to action, a unifying framework, and a mission statement for improved math and science education. Opportunity Equation presented a vision for excellent, equitable science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) learning that would reach all U.S. students and prepare them for full participation as citizens and as workers in an increasingly global economy, and it lent momentum and credibility to a growing movement. Now the conveners of the Commission, Carnegie Corporation of New York and the Institute for Advanced Study are looking back on the major developments in each of the four areas emphasized in the original report: excellence and equity; standards and assessments; teaching and leadership; and school and system design."
