Established on the 30 year anniversary of the first moon landing, The Glenn Commission was empowered by Richard Riley, the Secretary of Education under the Clinton Administration, to examine and report on the quality of mathematics and science teaching in America. The commission was chaired by former astronaut and US Senator, John Glenn and was composed of senators, governors, business leaders as well as educators from all levels. The report that the commission generated, titled Before It’s Too Late was delivered in September of 2000.
