Some subscribers to MathEdCC might be interested in a recent post "Symbiosis: A Standardista Endorses a Direct Instructionist" [Hake (2013)].  The abstract reads:

*********************************************
ABSTRACT: In "Re: Casualty of the Math Wars" [Hake (2012a)] at <http://bit.ly/R1q22j> I criticized Bishop et al.'s "A Close Examination of Jo Boaler's Railside Report" <http://tinyurl.com/czsa4c>. Then in "R.L. Moore - Pioneer of Math Education Reform" [Hake (2013c)] at <http://yhoo.it/132baYU>, I criticized Bishop's (2013b) "Re: Direct Instruction rocks: Or does it?" <http://bit.ly/11f8CTH> (click on the html attachment).

My criticism of Bishop's proclamations led "standardista" (in the educational sense employed by Susan Ohanian <http://bit.ly/Xe7P56)>) Richard P. Phelps (2013) <http://bit.ly/15kFCOc> to endorse direct instructionist Wayne Bishop by portraying my criticism as simply "personal animosity" in a post of that title at <http://bit.ly/15iMz2m>. In this post I show that Phelps makes serious errors in each of his nine objections to my criticism.
