Here’s a report from inside the LAPUSD (Los Angeles public schools), concerning the realities of math instruction there. And by extension, to other parts to the country, which as we know tests poorly for math skills, especially relative to other countries.
This isn’t news per se, as we’ve seen the headlines on bad math results for years and years now. But the author here tries to move us along towards possible improvements, much needed if we are to support STEM improvements overall. Kudos to Joe Hartley, my bro-in-law, for sharing this link to his essay.
