Let me be perfectly clear -- there *is* a place for calculus in the high
school curriculum, for those students for whom it is naturally appropriate
-- in a large school, surely enough for one or three classes. But not for
*most* college bound students. The goal isn't to stop teaching calculus in
high school, but to have more options, I might add for *all* students.
