Initiated in 2006, the objective of Vision 2015 is to provide a world-class public education for all students in Delaware. Results released from the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) are a factual testament to how urgent the need for reform is in our schools. PISA measures the performance of students in 34 developed countries. The United States’ ranking told a discouraging tale; 14th in reading, 17th in science and 25th in math.
The 9th Annual Numbers Bee is for Delaware students in Grades 3 – 8. It is scheduled for May 14, 2011 at AI duPont High School, Greenville, Delaware.
Schools interested in participating in the 2011 DE Numbers Bee should visit www.NationalBee.org . Space is limited.
