Mountain View Voice: Scores not adding up (December 22, 2006)
Math scores among elementary students in the Mountain View Whisman School District have been slipping over the past five years, and administrators at Mountain View and Los Altos high schools have started to take notice as a segment of students consistently struggle in algebra and geometry.
Officials from the two districts held a joint meeting Monday night to look for ways to fix the problem. The collaboration was the first to take place in six years, and there should be more to come this school year.
This is probably a good thing. If math scores improve, the next generation might just realize that the 40 year ARM/NegAm loans that their parents got might not be a good idea.
