remembering math

I am not a math teacher, but I can't help but wonder: Is it possible that Dan Hart's students can't remember math from day to day, let alone from year to year as he says because their prior curriculum was based on drill and they have not learned for understanding?
Also would anyone like to comment on recent results from New York City that showed double and triple the numbers of students passing Regents algebra and science exams as a result of the requirement that they be placed in these courses?
