Since the 1983 publication of A Nation at Risk (National Commission on Excellence in Education), comparisons of the American education system with those of other countries have become commonplace. Hundreds of articles on the subject have appeared in the popular, professional and academic literature, as well as in a number of books. Comparisons have also been driven by the "America 2000" campaign. The challenge to science educators in this campaign is explicit: "By the year 2000, United States students will be first in the world in science and mathematics achievement."
