Author:Alan Schoenfeld, Journal of Mathematical Behavior
Description: In the absence of either large-scale empirical proof of success or the existence of compelling and documentable standards, there is reason to be cautious. The traditionalists are nervous for good reason. It should be noted, however, that the resistance to change is not based on the purported success of current curricula (one is hard-pressed to find people who say that we are doing things well!), but on the fear that the replacement will be even worse... An excerpt from March 1994.
