“SBOE To Dump Common Core-Aligned Freakish Math”

By Donna Garner

4.5.17

 

Glory, hallelujah! The Texas State Board of Education has heard the outcries from thousands of Texas parents who are outraged over the Common Core-aligned way math is being taught to their children. The SBOE is to vote on an amendment at its April 18 meeting “to remove references to mathematical process skills [i.e., Common Core-aligned methodology] from knowledge and skills statements in the mathematics Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).”

 

Now is the time for Texas parents to contact the SBOE and ask them to vote “yes” on this amendment — http://tea.texas.gov/About_TEA/Leadership/State_Board_of_Education/Board_Members/SBOE_Members/  – Donna Garner]
