For example, much of the justification for the sense of crisis that permeated A Nation at Risk centered on the perception of America’s declining industrial competitiveness. Issues of unemployment, productivity, and the balance between exports and imports seemed to point to a troubled economy. As noted, the implicit linkage to education was fostered and reenforced by reports on education and the economy issued by associations representing business and industry.

Education policy of the last decade. The current reform efforts were sparked by a number of reports published in the early 1980s decrying the state of the nation’s schools—prominent among them the report A Nation at Risk by the National Commission on Excellence in Education (1983). Several of these reports specifically documented inadequate student achievement and preparation in mathematics and science (National Academy of Sciences 1982, National Science Board 1983). One of the most often articulated rationales and visible influences on educational reform policy for more than a decade has been the state of the economy.

That project, in fact, is one of the eight cases included in our study of innovations. The NCTM work has consistently been projected as a model for federally supported efforts in other subject matter fields, including science, history, social studies, English, and the arts. “Standards” is a powerful concept, especially since it encompasses several meanings. It is worth noting that the term has come to be used in the NCTM effort in the sense of a banner, a rallying flag under which professionals in the field of mathematics education could march.
