### Math scores in the US.

News just came out that national standards in math scores in 4th grade did not improve from 2007 to 2009. For 2 decades math scores made slow but steady progress. The span between 2007 and 2009 saw no such progress. Why?

Only 39% of 4th graders and 34% of 8th graders preformed at grade level. To put this into perspective, in a class of 25 fourth grade students 15 students are not at grade level in math. What can we do to reverse this trend?
