Financing our Math demise

I've always wondered how a program that produces such poor results can continue. The USA's extremely poor math scores when compared internationally are a far cry from 45 years ago.

Reform Math is financed by the US Government in a variety of ways. It is not just NSF HED funds.

Look here for information on TERC the creators of the TERC/Investigations

* National Aeronautics and Space Administration

* National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

* National Science Foundation

* US Department of Commerce

* US Department of Education

* US Department of Labor

Your tax dollars at work destroying mathematics education in America.
Watch "Two Million Minutes" and try to explain why we do this?

USA is not shooting itself in the foot but in the brain.
