CA Education Code states that a publisher may not "become associated with any combination in restraint of trade in instructional materials." A representative admitted, "I made the decision that Everyday Math. . . would be a better fit in Palo Alto."
The math adoption committee had voted unanimously to pilot SRA/Real Math but the publisher denied it and sent only Everyday Math for piloting.
Superintendent Kevin Skelly agreed: "We were told they would not provide the (pilot) materials"
The choice is important because "publishers are not, by the state code. allowed to make a choice."
