Fontana, California - Community News
One of the members of the coalition, Guillermo Mendieta, director of Mathematics Standards Initiatives at The Achievement Council, has vowed to go on a hunger strike, starting April 1st (April is mathematics month) which will continue until the Board votes to not eliminate the integrated mathematics courses.When asked about his decision to go on a hunger strike he said:
says that while there is no question that there serious implementation problems, including the lack of proper training on how to effectively use reformed/integrated programs, the exist evidence strongly suggests that despite those problems, the programs are having a tremendously positive impact on students.He
believes that to improve student achievement in mathematics, rather than eliminating these programs, the board should be focusing on how to improve them.
Given the overwhelming evidence that shows how Integrated mathematics programs are improving the mathematics learning of so many students, Mr. Mendieta
was asked why the district seems to making a totally irrational policy decision.He said, "you need to remember what Mr. Cortines said a few days before he became the interim superintendent, he said the Los Angeles Unified School District was the most dysfunctional district in the nation.
A major symptom of that disjunction is evident in the district's pattern of making substantial policy decisions with no regard to the research or the evidence of the likely impact on students and teachers.
