And our current school board brags about recent expenditures in technology and looks to reduce teaching staff even more, thereby increasing<quoted text>
I don't know about any other math classes but in my son's 7th grade math class the teacher constantly refers him to penda learning or study island web sites to work on math problems. The problem is, he hasn't even been 'taught' how to work the problems. The teacher expects the WEB SITE to do that. The teacher also posts videos but they aren't any better.
If this is what math 'teaching' is today it's no wonder they are "proficient".
And don't get me started on the constant use of 'open book' tests that are given in other subjects he takes...
class sizes......hmmm....even more opportunities for our children to receive less personalized instruction and assistance. If I was this parent, I would be outraged.
