EDC Conducts National Survey on Supporting Struggling Math Learners

Amy Brodesky

EDC is leading a national survey that will provide new insights into the strategies schools and districts are using to support middle grades students who are struggling with mathematics. This April and May, a team led by Amy Brodesky will send the short online survey to a nationally representative sample of over 2,000 public schools in all 50 states.

Nationwide, schools and districts face a pressing need to make sure all middle school students gain the strong foundation of mathematics skills and knowledge they need to excel in high school and, later on, in college and careers. “Right now, not much is known about the types of additional support and intervention that schools provide to students,” Brodesky said. “We plan to share the findings from the national survey in articles, presentations, and webinars to help guide and inform efforts to promote students’ successful math learning."
