**Principles and Standards for School Mathematics**
describes a future in which all students have access to rigorous, high-quality
mathematics instruction, including four years of high school mathematics.

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
(NCTM) published the first edition of its Standards in 1989. A second,
completely revised, edition was published in 2000 as Principles and Standards
for School Mathematics (PSSM). A large number of individuals were involved, and
the common author citation is simply NCTM. Principal authors of the 2000
Principles and Standards include: Joan Ferrini-Mundy (Chair of the Writing
Group), W. Gary Martin (Project Director), Jeane Joyner (Chair of the Grades
PreK-2 Group), Barbara Reys (Chair of the Grades 3-5 Group), Edward A. Silver
(Chair of the Grades 6-8 Group), Alan Schoenfeld (Chair of the Grades 9-12
Group), Jean Carpenter and Sheila Gorg (Editors), and Debra G. Kushner (Design).
