The importance of mathematical literacy for all students, both in everyday life and in the workplace, has never been greater. Realizing the vision of high-quality mathematics education for all students, as described in NCTM's Principles and Standards for School Mathematics, requires the active participation of everyone in the education community, including administrators. This booklet describes what administrators need to know about mathematics education and what they can do to support and improve mathematics education in their schools.
