Here we go again

Latest issue of Summing Up
Latest "NCTM Summing Up" posts the inevitable. More study needed. What a surprise. As if we haven't done enough studies already! It's business as usual. The major players in the math ed community want to have fun telling us what we should be doing with our students using scare tactics to get the nervous public to go along with their latest hype. We're still a "Nation at Risk" and will continue to be as long as the "hafta-do" curriculum rules in most schools. Kids need to be heard more and college professors less because the current paradigm is not making any substantial improvements in teaching school math.
