I absolutely agree. Things will get worse before they get better.Yep, his school had no math book AND no homework. I only saw how he was doing after an "exit ticket" was brought home at which point we would spend time going over the ones he got wrong so I knew he was understanding it.
Both of his teachers these past two years each said that they weren't always certain what they were asking their students to do. To me, that is a challenge that definitely needs to change.
The reality that Betts is in could become much more prevalent a few years down the road if the mathematics foundation for these kids isn't built first.
