Summary

This spring, when President Bush proposed a $200-million-a-year science and math education program to be run by the National Science Foundation but offered scant details, legislators jumped at the chance to influence one of the hottest political debates of the year. The result is a slew of bills that would flesh out Bush's sketchy plan to forge partnerships between university researchers and local school districts. Chances appear good that one or more of them will be adopted this year, although funding levels remain up in the air.
