Strong Math Skills Enhance State Workforce
Statement by Dr. Gary Schuster, Provost of the Georgia Institute of Technology, in support of a change in Georgia's math curriculum:
I believe that working to make sure that every child has the opportunity to reach his or her educational potential is our obligation and a critical investment in Georgia's future. A stronger mathematics curriculum that strikes a balance between concepts, skills and problem solving is a vital part of preparing our young people for the global economy of the 21st century. Georgia Tech continues to support mathematics education throughout the state with our Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Computing (CEISMC). CEISMC (pronounced "seismic") is committed to helping assure that K-12 students in Georgia receive the best possible preparation in science, mathematics and technology as they seek their place in the modern world.
