Math Takes Bath

Google “math scores” and you will find a pathetic litany of lies and alibis...Scores are DOWN, but not that much, so don’t worry about it!....Scores are UP, but as Newsday reported June 21, 2009: “Higher passing rates for students on state math tests have triggered debate...over the question of whether Albany has pumped up results by lowering cutoff scores.” Did you get that? They move passing from 75, let’s say, to 70 and then announce to the world: “Kids better in math!” ....It’s hard to think of something more corrupt than math instruction in the USA. New Math didn’t teach math circa 1960. Reform Math, also known as New New Math, doesn’t teach math today. As subversives, our math experts are world-class. Anything with a name like MathLand, Connected Math, Constructivist Math, or Everyday Math seems to be a Three-card Monte. Run the other way if you hear these warning signs: algorithms, spiraling, constructivist, cooperative, critical thinking...From what I hear, homeschoolers use only Saxon Math or Singapore Math.

About Me

My photo

Remain a novelist, artist, poet, and art director. But main activity is writing about education reform.. The schools, now bad due to ideology and laziness, could be easily improved. 

That claim is clearly explained in new book  "Saving K-12--What happened to our public schools. How do we fix them?"

I invite everyone to join my crusade or start your own. The worst thing is letting the Education Establishment continue its reign of incompetence.
