Beautiful... and exactly on point!
"We should demand to hear the pros and cons of every argument when it comes to our children's math curriculum. The distracting buzz of irrelevancies like "pickaninnies" points to a failure in logic that has no place in a discussion about math, of all things."
I believe that the general public would demand the same now (10 YEARS LATER!) if they were aware of the problems with mathed "research" cited repeatedly in support of K-12 math programs.
