National Math and Science Initiative president and CEO Dr. Mary Ann Rankin writes in today's Huffington Post that the U.S. public school system no longer provides a path to the American dream for our students. Their preparation in math and the sciences, in particular, is insufficient to meet the anticipated demands of the future workforce. "We can do better if we recognize that success in college depends on preparation that begins in middle school or earlier, especially in the critical areas of math and science," Dr. Rankin writes. "Students who fail to learn the basics in these fields have little hope of catching up in time to succeed in college."
