Peter Goodman, former teacher and frequent blogger about education in New York City and New York State, reviews Bill Gates’ next big idea to reform education: Redesign Algebra 1.
From Small High Schools to Measures of Effective Teaching (MET) to Value-Added Measurements (VAM) to the Common Core State Standards, the Gates Foundation has been searching for the magic bullet, a vaccine for curing education, and the “cures” have proven fruitless (See links above)
The next magic bullet is a cure for Algebra 1, the course viewed as standing in the way of graduation and success in the post graduate world.
The Gates Foundation released an application for a new initiative: “Balance the Equation.”

Bill is tip-toeing into another education morass.
If so, at least his record is consistent.
