Remove "Investigations" and teach our kids math!
This is a petition to change the math curriculum in Waterloo Community Schools. If you have a son or daughter in elementary and you are not satisfied with their progress in math we have two options, get used to it or force a change.
I am tired of watching my son struggle with the basics, I know i am not the only one. Instead of giving our kids a good math foundation to build on, our district has decided to continue with the "Investigations" curriculum that leaves them confused and not sure how to solve the problems.
School districts across the country have tried this system and had their math scores DECREASE! http://www.nychold.com/terc.html Google Investigations Math, read about other parents experiences, testing data and districts that have kicked this to the curb.
We as parents need to stand together to convince our school board to drop this program before it is too late. Our children's futures are on the line!
