Description: This advocacy organization's mission begins: "The performance of American students in mathematics is mediocre at best. Reform efforts over the past two decades have only made matters worse. We are advocates for school mathematics education reforms that support the mathematics interests and abilities of all students...." This website of the national coalition gathers newspapers and journal articles into sections such as curriculum reviews; standards and assessments; "Who Funds 'Reform' Math?"; advice for parents; national and local organizations and campaigns; and conferences, talks, videos, and short takes. Regular authors have included HOLD Co-Founder and Executive Director Carson Karen Budd, Barry Garelick, David Klein, R. James Milgram, Ralph A. Raimi, Martha Schwartz, Sandra Stotsky, Vern Williams, and W. Stephen Wilson. HOLD stands for "Honest Open Logical Decisions" on mathematics education reform. NYC HOLD also covers issues specific to New York city and state.
