Abstract:
This essay examines the results of an undergraduate research project which consisted of interviewing two legislators and five teachers about the Arizona College and Career Ready Standards for mathematics education. The study focused on understanding how the populations interact especially in regards to their goals and measurement of success for the standards. Further, the project worked to summarize trends in the perspectives of both legislators and educators in order to compare those perspectives. This thesis works to satisfy the requirements to graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science with honors and, thus, focuses more on the nature of legislation than the content of math education. However, the essay does strive to suggest policy recommendations based upon teacher input, and examines the nature of how education policy is reformed.
