Judge orders school board to reconsider math program adoption
Original post made by A. on Feb 4, 2010
"In June, two parents and a University of Washington professor went to King County Superior Court to overturn the School Board's decision and force the district to consider other textbook options.
They argued that the curriculum would do harm, not good by widening the achievement gap between middle-class and underprivileged students."
Since there was such an outcry here about the Everyday Math adoption, I wonder whether any Palo Alto parents have similar action in mind.
Interestingly, the "Discovering Algebra" materials mentioned in the article were also recently adopted by the PAUSD School Board (in April 2009) for use as a supplement for 8th grade algebra.
