SMH Article – new report on decline in science and maths studied in high school

An article in today’s SMH refers to a report by John Kennedy, Terry Lyons & Frances Quinn Continuing decline of science and mathematics enrolments in Australian high schools‘ published in the journal ‘Teaching Science’. The report analyses raw data from education departments in each state for the period 1992-2012 and discusses the overall decline in enrolments in science and mathematics.  It discusses enrolment trends for each level of mathematics subjects and provides a useful comparative table for mathematics subjects across the states.
