Students in the U.S. currently rank 25th in math and 17th in science among their peers in other industrialized countries. Yet research shows that 80 percent of future jobs will require literacy and skills in these areas.

The recent recession and weak economic recovery have been characterized by historically high rates of long-term unemployment. Workers confronted with persistent unemployment face a number of challenges, including the threat of skills atrophy and becoming less attractive to prospective employers. Moreover, the dichotomy between workers continues to expand, as those with high levels of education and skills can command high wages, and those with little education and low skill levels can command only low wages in the service industry.
