Subject: everyday math

This program is awful. I have two children who are now in high school and do not know their math facts as a result of this program. The fundamentals are not drilled and the continuity is lost. One day a student does fractions, the next day geometry, the next multiplication. My poor fourth grader is struggling through it now in the 4th grade at Mount Olive Twp school in NJ. The administration claims that no parents have complained but I have spoken to many that hate this program. I have to believe that performance on standardized testing has dropped as a result of this program. Unfortunately we have had it in Mount Olive since 1995 or earlier and the administration thinks it's wonderful
