Business Group Sees Flaw in New Math Standards
The Texas State Board of Education is in the process of adopting new math standards this week that would be used in classrooms for the next decade. But the proposal is under fire from one influential business group.
“There’s a lot of language in there that we think is barely comprehensible,” he says. “And, as often happens in the committee process, far too many items are mentioned and there’s not enough depth in the document in certain important areas.”
Hammond says he will urge the State Board of Education to revise the standards and consider delaying the vote for final adoption until June.
