Olympia Parents Rebel Against Math Curriculum

Olympia, WA is undergoing a math curriculum review. The local paper published these letters from parents, commenting on the school district plans. This is starting to happen in Oregon with a group of parents in Beaverton fighting the curriculum in their city. Please remember, this is a statewide issue, not just a Beaverton city issue. Our state standards AND testing is aligned for non-traditional math curriculum using language and multiple methods of arriving at an answer instead of standard formulas and correct answers.
