I haven't looked at the others but Benezet's ideas were pure bunk that I have sketched before on this resource at least once and I believe twice or more. The short form is that the math ed master's degree had all the trappings of math ed research everywhere (as in religious proselytizing) and implementation of his ideas did not survive in his district already within his tenure as superintendent. It may have been okay on "the other side of the tracks" school that piloted it with that math masters student who studied. When it was mandated for the entire district, and more educated parents (not other "professional" math educators who keep spreading the gospel) saw what was underway, there was all hell to pay.

I'm looking for an alternative math curriculum (Benezet or Davidov?) that actually works (without having to translate one from another country). :) Ideas?

Thanks!
