A systems take on math and science education?

Richard Hake, Emeritus Professor of Physics, Indiana University, recently posted an article describing how US colleges and universities are gradually coming to the view that they can't simply blame US secondary schools for the quality of math and science education incoming college students have, for the teachers and administrators of those secondary schools are themselves almost all products of the US college and university system.

This seems like closed-loop (feedback) thinking in action. Check out his Mobilization for Math/Science Education - Role of Higher Education.
