Subject: Re: New pre-algebra course without prerequisites

Hello, Gail.

Thank you for answering my question, and I hope you don't mind if I ask
another.  I've been doing some "research" on-line the past few days. I have
been looking at course descriptions for many different school districts
in my own area (central Wisconsin) as well as across the country. I haven't
yet found one that offers 7th grade pre-algebra without some prerequisites,
some being fairly stringent. I also have read from several different
educators that this course is considered "advanced" for 7th graders and that
it is not for MOST students. Your comments were encouraging, but what is your
opinion on what I noted here?

(By the way, luckily our teachers and administrators are remaining positive
and upbeat, and I know they will do their best to make this fast
implementation a success.)
