UPDATE: Someone else has posted a pretty comprehensive video from this meeting of the discussion regarding the “opt-in” option that would allow parents to choose which math program they want for their students. If you want to get a good feel for how the different board members approached this discussion, and which ones said they’re not going to listen to parents, this is a lot easier than watching the entire three and a half hour meeting.
