The Politics of California School Mathematics: The Anti-Reform of 1997-99.
Becker, Jerry P.; Jacob, Bill
Phi Delta Kappan, v81 n7 p529-32,534-37 Mar 2000
Explains how a powerful group of parents and mathematicians manipulated information and capitalized on the public's perception of California's "failing schools" to acquire political clout. In California, "teaching for understanding" is now a banished concept, and mastery of procedural skills ("parrot math") has scored a big victory. (Contains 34 references.) (MLH)
