NCTM has never pretend nor issued statements that indicated that the standards
were perfect or that they are to be abided by as if they were divinely
inspired. They have produced an Addendum series that amplifies, clarifies, and
operationalizes for the classroom teacher some powerful ideas on how to
implement the standards (or just do some darn good teaching.

Some people who criticize the standards are misinformed, ignorant, or have
never read them. Some people who criticize the standards are correct about the
issues they raise. It is wholesale attacks or taking a quote made in a specific
reply (such as the one attributed to Jack Price) and saying it applies to
everyone who disagrees that is inappropriate.
