Toward the end of the 20th century, however, in response to A Nation at Risk, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) published three documents outlining a new approach to mathematics education based on the constructivist philosophy of learning (National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, 1989, 1991, 1995). Together, these documents changed mathematics education dramatically and spurred one of the most extensive and influential reforms of modern education. In 2000, the NCTM refined its original standards document to better reflect classroom instruction and student learning.

Seventy-seven percent of fourth graders were found to be at or above “basic” understanding of mathematics concepts, including 32% performing at the “proficient” and “advanced” levels. Among eighth graders, 68% scored at the “basic” level or above, with 29% scoring at the “proficient” and “advanced” levels.

Eisner’s conceptions are: 1. Religious orthodoxy, which refers to the influence of some dogmatic beliefs on the ways in which schools function—influence that is not strictly religious in the church-related sense. 2. Rational humanism, focusing on scientific method, reasoning, and dialectic; this approach is not widespread in America at this time.
