I think the Common Core Standards address this issue best. I spend a good
portion of parent teacher night laying out my argument to parents for why
mathematics is still relevant and why they should reinforce this view at
home with their children.

I find it troubling that the matter needs defending. Just one more way in
which us teachers are under attack. Is there any other country in the world
where teachers have to spend as much of their time defending what they do?
