12. so because parents are frustrated, that makes it bad?

srsly?

i happen to know the head researcher at the erickson institute whose work is reflected in the new standards. when she does training workshops for primary teachers here, they leave amazed.
none of these examples particularly befuddle this old lady.

parents always have and always will complain about homework. that is not a valid reason to toss an otherwise good curriculum.
and btw, math scores in chicago are rising.
as are graduation rates.
and college attendance rates.

damn that rahm, and his u of c conspirators.


eta, 7 yo's are, actually, quite capable of abstract mathematical thinking. her research was built on groundbreaking discoveries of just how much babies know, including their understanding of math concepts.
