"The art and science of coaching begin when schools, coaches (and math specialists) empower and motivate teachers by giving them more responsibility, providing them choices, and enhancing their self-esteem. Creating the conditions necessary for a productive atmosphere helps coaches determine the aptitude of teachers by recognizing their talents and by employing targeted strategies to help teachers develop their skills."

Hull, Balka, and Harbin Miles (2009)

"For over a decade, research studies of mathematics education in high-performing countries have pointed to the conclusion that the mathematics curriculum in the United States must become substantially more focused and coherent in order to improve mathematics achievement in this country. To deliver on the promise of common standards, the standards must address the problem of a curriculum that is "a mile wide and an inch deep."

- CCSSO, 2011

"In order to promote and support changes in classroom practices that ensure all students are learning, teachers must balance assessment for learning (used to form instructional decisions and monitor student progress) with assessment of learning (used to evaluate students' progress and achievement, assign grades and appraise programs)."

"... the planning for instruction and instructional practices must align with well-articulated goals, instruction, and assessment. Students must be prepared to be active constructors of knowledge as required in today's workplace and advanced schooling."
