Now Michigan Lawmakers Want To Change Math Requirements In School
OK...So...There's a really good chance an extreme amount of hypocrisy is about to be all up in this business. It's very well known that I was not a big fan of math in high school; more specifically algebra. In fact, I was really good at math in grade school and can still do my times tables at a speed which makes them indistinguishable. Alright, alright maybe that's not the math we're talking about. Nevertheless, with the possibility of math expectations changing in Michigan public schools, I find myself inclined to defend math and keep it a priority.
Personally, I don't think we should discontinue something just because kids don't like it. The list of things teenagers don't like but need is endless. Now, however, Michigan lawmakers are introducing a bill that would give students a choice. In an article on 9and10news.com, some math teachers actually agree that high school kids should have a choice. Get more of the story by clicking HERE.
