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.
