A team of researchers have re-assessed the results of several common measures of math and science education success. One researcher says that, when it comes to math and science, the study found that "American students are no worse, and often score better, than students from many leading countries."

Guests:

Harold Salzman, senior research associate at The Urban Institute, Washington, DC

Shirley M. Malcom, head of education and human resources at the American Association for the Advancement of Science

Craig R. Barrett, chairman of the board, Intel Corporation
