  1. Newsflash:

    I hear tutors favor Every Day math.

    Why? — more work (and higher fees) for them, especially when the kids get older and no longer have dumb downed math equations to master.

  2. Very important point, 11:29 AM.

    Thanks for making it.

    I must admit, I hadn’t quite put 2 and 2 together to figure out that the average tutor, all else being equal, would be more likely to prefer bad math in the public schools than good math.

    Why should we expect tutors to lend their support for something (such as elimination of constructivist math from the grade schools) that would tend to hurt them financially, particularly given the current economy?

    …maybe the tutors understand that under Obama’s redistribution of wealth philosophy their job is to support the math program that most evenly distributes a “fixed pool” of knowledge and damn the personal financial considerations, since they will be taken care of by the state.

    I can lend you some more straws if the few you have left slip out of your grasp…

  6. 9:34 please explain how Maskin was looking out for HER children first by running for the BOE.

  7. 4:04 What’s your point? Where are you headed with this question? This is not 9:34.

  8. 4:04 it’s just so obvious I can’t figure out how you don’t know the answer to your own question.
