I would like to point that, starting in 1989, ExxonMobil provided extensive funding for the promotion of "math reform" and assorted "standards"--a campaign that has been an abject failure. There is every reason to believe that ExxonMobil's additional hundreds of millions will end up funding another abject failure.
