For years, despite the tremendous efforts by our hard-working teachers and administrators, PAUSD has been plagued by its students' alarming achievement disparties.

What does Stanford have to do with the dismal PISA results? The Stanford Graduate School of Education is a hub for producing, promoting and propelling those crazy math education doctrines and methods in PAUSD and across the nation, for years and decades!

In October, some Stanford GSE faculty members launched a campaign to displace high school Algebra 2 with so-called data science.

Stanford, shame on you for indulging your faculty in ruining our children and our nation!
