USL 1, 0.5, 0.25 pilot proposals to national, state, and city governments

The most critical information relevant USL 0.5 (boosting national school math average by 1 year) or USL1 (boosting by 2 years) within 2-4 years of reform-time information that all the governments and Ministries of Education should be aware of. Please read the following 1 page summary first.

7 Key Points to MOEs, DOEs and governments why they should collaborate with the USL 0.5 and 1 (1 page)


Based on our previous success that is exemplified in the 5 minute TV news coverage video below, we would like to collaborate with your government and Department of Education this spring, hopefully starting in March and execute in April and not later than May if possible.

Since the subject we cover may appear to be a bit daunting, before we send out the official proposal, we would like you to take a brief look at a 2 page Executive Summary and watch 2 very short videos.


  1. USL 0.5 is designed to boost the major city or state average school math of the U.S.A. states to advance 1 year although it normally takes 8-25 years for the U.S. states and the average will take about 15 years.
  2. USL 1.0 is designed to boost the state or national average school math of the U.S.A. to advance 2 year although it normally takes minimum 15-50 years for the U.S. states and the average will take at least 30 years even if they are very lucky and chances are about 40 years as the progress normally slows down significantly even for the fastest growing states or countries for boosting the school math average.
  3. These short papers are designed to provide some of the key information as to why the various U.S. states and major cities should consider the USL 0.25 or 0.5 pilot studies in 2015 as early as possible as the costs will be minimal compared to the colossal gains that the state governments will enjoy over the rest of the century. As the USL reforms for the states will last 1-3 years or so, our projections will be 1.3-1.7x larger than Hanushek-Woessmann projections. 1) USL 0.25 will boost the state school math averages by half a year and its Real GDP contribution for the states are expected to be 4x-5x than now by USL 0.5 2) USL 0.5 will boost the Real GDP contribution for the states at least 10x larger than now (most likely about 13-16x larger). 3) USL 1.0 will boost the Real GDP contribution for the states at least 20-25x larger than now (most likely about 25-30x larger). In this paper, we included the key data on the U.S. state math proficiency charts, statewide school math annual growth rates,

Documents for the evidences that support the USL x.x claims and proposals

Please read the documents to see the relevance of USL 0.5 proposals to the state governments.

  • Preliminary Data For the USA´s DOE: version 1 (The state math proficiency and math proficiency growth rate data excerpts for THE U.S. STATE and City GOVERNMENTS relevant for the USL 0.25, 0.5 and 1.0 (version 1))
  • Preliminary Data For all national Ministries of Education

  • The original papers by Hanushek-Woessmann and Peterson published from UNESCO, World Bank, Harvard, and OECD, from which our original linking between the USL1´s boosting of 2 year national average math and boost of 2% GDP per capita connections are based can be found here (for those who like to check the origin).
  • Our online compilations of the dynamic data about economic indicators, eduducation, and human capital. In many of these, if you hover your cursor over, you can see the dynamic data directly. To view some, please click here.
