Global Perspectives for Local Action: Using TIMSS to Improve U.S. Mathematics and Science Education - Professional Development Guide Summary: School Support Systems Japanese teachers have more opportunities to discuss teaching. Beginning teachers in Japan have a structured induction plan. Japanese students watch as much TV as U.S. students but do better in school. Attitudes of U.S. students toward math/science are similar to the international average; they are positive and decline from the 4th grade to the 8th grade.

Global Perspectives for Local Action: Using TIMSS to Improve U.S. Mathematics and Science Education - Professional Development Guide “Educational systems tend to overcorrect for what is seen as a problem and end up with a different situation that may be just as unsatisfactory. We seek in this report to help decision-makers balance the pendulum swings so as to make more likely steady progress toward a better education in science and mathematics for all our students and for our nation.” From: Global Perspectives for Local Action
