One of these websites is maintained by the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse (ENC) for Mathematics and
Science Education.5 The ENC is a centralized site that gathers educational materials and makes them available
from its own computers. Content specialists find and acquire the rights to materials, write abstracts for the
resources on the site, enter data, and maintain the site catalog—a resource-intensive process that ensures quality
while slowing somewhat the provision of resources. A search engine allows users to find the materials in which
they are interested.

This study focuses on how teachers are being prepared through the Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) at three different universities. Documentary and oral sources, a small survey, focus groups and interviews, provide the basis for an analysis of the context and history of each institution: the profile of staff and students in teacher-education courses; and the ways in which issues of diversity are addressed. A well-grounded set of recommendations provides direction for the road ahead.

The numbers above have showed us a very positive situation. However, there is some weakness that needs to be pointed out. The teaching method being applied by most school in Vietnam is the old and traditional one in which the teacher is the primary speaker and the learners are the primary listeners. This method creates boredom in learners and encourages passive study habit. On the other hand, teachers are also under high pressure to strictly follow the curricula governed by the Ministry of Education and Training, which are dense and out of date.
The Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS) was established in 1958 with
the mission to improve the quality of biology education at all levels. Not long
after the inception of the organization, our mission was expanded to include the
improvement of science education, not just biology education. In 2000, we further
articulated this mission to describe the work we would do in curriculum develop-
ment, professional development, and research and evaluation.
WAGE RETURNS FOR POST -SECONDARY EDUCATION: A COMPARISON FOR SELECTED PROGRAMS BY LEVELS OF EDUCATION AND INDUSTRY TYPE The potential effects of school choice programs depend critically on what
characteristics parents value in schools. Hanushek, for example, notes that parents might
not choose effective schools over others that are less effective but offer pleasant
surroundings, athletic facilities, [and] cultural advantages, (1981, p. 34). To the extent that
parents choose productive schools, market discipline can induce greater productivity from
school administrators and teachers.
