The Politics of California School Mathematics: The Anti-Reform of 1997-99


In this article from the March 2000 issue of Phi Delta Kappan, authors Jerry Becker and Bill Jacob "tell the story of a powerful group of parents and mathematicians in California who manipulated information and played off of the public's perception of our 'failing schools' to acquire political clout." We hope many of you will find this intruiguing (and controversial) article of interest and relevant to work in your own states.
