During the 1990s, the content of K-12 mathematics and science courses came under attack by the education establishment. These “new math,” “integrated math,” “discovery math,” etc. courses sought to protect students from difficulties in learning traditional mathematical skills. But it failed to provide students with the proper mathematical skills. Science education also suffered due to an “anti science movement.” This includes attacks on what scientists do, how they affect society and the scientific method of reaching objective truth.
However, there are many teachers who still recognize that their job is to teach mathematics and science skills, and not to fall to the whims of educators. These teachers display great integrity in defying the education establishment to ensure that their students actually learn mathematics and science.
