The Kilpatrick committee and leading educational theoreticians hadthrownthe gauntlet, and the Mathematical Association of America (MAA)respondedvigorously. Already in 1916, in anticipation of the Kilpatrick report,E. R. Hedrick, the first president of the MAA, appointed a committeecalledthe National Committee on Mathematical Requirements. It was chaired byJ. W. Young of Dartmouth and included mathematicians E. H. Moore,OswaldVeblen, and David E. Smith, in addition to several prominent teachersandadministrators from the secondary school system. The reports of thiscommitteewere delayed because of World War I, but they were eventually collectedinto a 625 page volume entitled, The report was published in 1923 and issometimesreferred to as the

Ashley Anderson -- America's Failing Public School System


At the state level, California all but ignored the U.S. DepartmentofEducation recommendations. Of the 12 "exemplary" and "promising" mathprograms,only the UCSMP grade 7 and 8 textbooks were adopted in 1999 inCalifornia,and none were accepted for statewide adoption in 2001. Several NSFsponsoredmath curricular programs were submitted for statewide adoption inCaliforniain 1999 and 2001, but due to deficiencies in mathematical content, nonewere adopted in either year.

Several months after the publication of the Open Letter to SecretaryRiley, the U.S. Department of Education designated two more curriculaas"promising": and TheDepartment of Education praised these two programs, for their alignmentto the , among other reasons.

Is there really any use in trying to show that education in America is firmly in the hands of enemies of the White race? Probably not, since it is so obvious. Plus it has been well addressed already time and again, including by gifted writer F. Roger Devlin, who delivered an address six years ago…

The founders of Mathematically Correct had credentials in scienceandmathematics that could not easily be dismissed. Gipson was aprofessionalengineer; Clopton a statistician working for the Department of VeteransAffairs in San Diego; Schwartz was finishing up a Ph.D. in geophysics;McKeown was a faculty member at the Salk Institute for BiologicalStudiesin San Diego (a few years later, McKeown accepted a professorship intheDivision of Biology and Medicine at Brown University). They were soonjoinedby others, notably Wayne Bishop, a professor and former chair of theMathematicsDepartment at California State University, Los Angeles, and FrankAllan,a former president of the NCTM. Both had many years of experiencedealingwith mathematics education issues, and both were critics of the .

Organized for the explicit purpose of assisting parents dissatisfiedwith "fuzzy math" in their children's schools, Mathematically Correctattracteda large number of supporters (including the author of this chapter).Likeother groups of its type, Mathematically Correct charged no dues, hadnoannual budget, and there was no formal membership. MathematicallyCorrectwas fueled entirely by the energy and dedication of its supporters,especiallyits webmaster, Paul Clopton. In the decade of the 1990s, MathematicallyCorrect emerged as the most influential and effective organization tochallengethe NCTM agenda. It served as a national clearing house for informationand advice on K-12 mathematics education. Its supporters entered thepoliticalprocess, met with reporters and politicians, served on Californiagovernmentpanels and commissions related to mathematics education, and testifiedbefore national boards and the U.S. Congress. Mathematically CorrectandHOLD played important roles in establishing the California mathematicsstandards in 1997, a topic taken up in the next section.
