Subject: Re: Chicago Math has Failed my two Daughters

Thank god somebody willing to speak the truth in such a
straightforward way!!!  I had to pull my gifted second grader out of
public school because of the Everyday Math program and also because of
Whole Language, (that is another story).  I'm glad to see that I'm not
the only one who feels this way.  I find the old addage " If it ain't
broke, don't fix it "  applies to this Math program.  Unfortunately,
all these children are basically being used as guinea pigs and they
will be worse off for it in the future.  Can you see them trying to
balance a check book ?  Thanks for you great input, I hope the people
who implement these curriculums get a chance to read it.
