>We look forward to Dr. Brennan’s answer to a question posed from the audience: “Who makes the final decision on curriculum?”
August 10, 2007 – TOGETHER WE ADD UP!
Thank you to all for attending the math chat last evening. If you are concerned for your child’s math education be sure to visit our Math Help for Kids section. We extend a special thanks to our new Interim Superintendent, Dr. Brennan, for attending the math chat.
We look forward to Dr. Brennan’s answer to a question posed from the audience: “Who makes the final decision on curriculum?”
VORMATH is actively trying to find the answer to the cost question regarding these materials. That question was posed by the Ridgewood News reporter, Keith Hamas, but never answered by the district.
Follow-up your attendance with ACTION:
Register to vote and demand candidates for the BOE clearly state their position on reform math in Ridgewood. Find out where your local Assemblyman, Congressman, & Senators stand on this issue. Use your power – VOTE!
Get your neighbors and friends to sign the petition – electronic copy or paper copy .
Write Letters to the Editor – Ridgewood News.
Write Letters to the BOE and send a copy of the letter and any response (including no response) to the newspapers.
Write directly to Dr. Brennan.“In 40 years as an educator, I have never come across parental concerns that did not, at its center, contain grains of truth that could help make things better.” Interim Superintendent, Tim Brennan.
Speak at a BOE meeting demanding CHOICE in math for your tax dollars.
Request your child be “opt-out” of the CMP experiment in the middle school.
Send Dr. Beth Yoshida-Fisher an email. She is being paid $9,000 to mediate this conflict.
Speak to your child’s teacher stating your child learns best in mathematics with direct instruction following a traditional, mainstream textbook. Request a plan of the content to be taught on a weekly basis, so you can actively participate in your child’s education.
Thank you. E Gnall, founder WWW.VORMATH.INFO
