First, I should say that this is an excellent political document and one that I believe all of the mathematics community can sign on to with some pride. However, in tone and to some extent in substance it is a step backwards from the last iteration.Simple declarative sentences are eliminated in favor of rather long justifications. One cannot find 'tracking should be eliminated', 'curriucula should be integrated'. Discrete mathematics is mentioned only five times, etc.
My feelings are that these documents should have been reversed in time,i.e. the Standards 2000 should have come out before the 1989 version. It is a more politic document and therefore much less brave. Perhaps this was necessary to achieve the necessary community consensus, now that people are paying more attention. But I cannot help feeling let down.
