Is this another Bright Bergeson Baloney fest, a justification for depriving tens of thousands of low income kids access to competitive math,

under the guise of 'discovering' concepts in a few months that took the best minds of humanity tens of thousands of years to discover?

will this be a rubber stamp of more grossly incompetent curriculum?

I've distrusted the leadership of the Republican Party since I was ... 12 in 1972? I figured that they wanted people like me - on welfare and dependent on public education for opportunity up and out - I figured they wanted me at the bottom forever.

There is NOT a more effective method of promoting the success of 1 economic class - the top class - than to have shitty, uncompetitive math instruction for all of those not at the top.

With friends like this, who needs enemies?

how many over 30,000 will bomb 10th grade math wasl this year?
