The article focuses on the claims of Yu Xie in his book "Is American Science in Decline?," that high school students in the U.S. are doing more coursework and performing better in mathematics and science than in the past. It relates that students in other countries are making the same rate of gain being made by U.S. students in 4th and 8th grade on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). It explains why the performance of U.S. students is mediocre.
