Actually, the senator didn't want mathematicians involved either. I don't think he would recognize the difference between a mathematician and a matheamtics educator. His preference is for parents to set the standards.
While I believe patients should be involved in decisions about health care and tenants about building safety, I look to medical and engineering professionals for definitive standards and guidance.
