The author focuses on the 2008 results of the project of the U.S. Department of Education called National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), which has evaluated academic progress in various subjects since the early 1970s. He cites the improvement in the scores for students aged 9 and 13 in average mathematics since 2004. He also mentions the claim of the Heritage Foundation that the top priority for most reform advocates is school choice.
