Has PWC set it’s schools on a course for failure?
To answer that question one need only look to the Elementary mathematics program – Investigations. You see, the philosophy Investigations follows – reform math – has failed miserably in state after state. By selecting Investigations for elementary students and pushing Connected Math in the Middle Schools, PWC is setting our children up for failure just like the children in Washington and California were set up by their school divisions.
This Article, from the Spokesman Review, discusses how reform math failed students in Washington and how parents and the State Legislature are working to take control back from the schools.
Perhaps it’s time for a state-wide effort to toughen our standards of learning and get rid of these fuzzy curricula once and for all.
