Beware of Math Taught in Public Schools

By TLS | October 29, 2007

Without a doubt I support public schools. I am the product of public schooling and I think I turned out just fine. I think our founding fathers were right when they suggested that an educated populace is necessary to preserve democracy, encourage innovation, and so forth.

But time and time again I come across things that just boggle my mind. Does anyone else see that we are hurting our kids when we teach to the lowest common denominator or when we teach so called “reformed” methods.

Check out this video on Math. It’s kind of long (just over 15 minutes), but well worth it. My advice to you? Make sure your kids are taught math using the standard algorithms.
