Example text

From an empirical point of view, the typical TIMSS results suggest greater commonalties across states and districts on many aspects of education but especially the curriculum than would be thought to be the case. This is especially evident when variations at the state and district levels are examined in light of the variations across countries. The latter are larger for most aspects of education than the former. In other words, variations across countries are larger than variations across districts or states within the United States.

There is a pressing need to focus on what students need to know and be able to do at the end of their formal education. Unless the curriculum is focused and coherent, policy and practice will continue to produce fragmented projects that fail to coalesce and teachers will continue to receive training that ill prepares them to teach essential science. Without coherence at either of these levels, it remains difficult to evaluate the effectiveness of science instructional materials that were produced to appeal to all kinds of visions by districts and states.
