MONTGOMERY, Ala. — The Alabama State Superintendent says he wants an overhaul on attention to math scores in all state schools.
Superintendent Michael Sentance says at a state school board meeting he wants to develop strategies to raise math scores. The reason being that Alabama students currently test the lowest in math.
Sentance says on 31 percent of Alabama eighth graders are proficient in the subject.
The superintendent says he wants a panel of 25 educators composed of math experts and business representatives to develop recommendations.
He hopes to have a draft proposal to present to the board in December.
