Not much posting lately due to lack of internet access other than my phone; but I had to link to this controversial article in the NYT--by a mathematician who ought to know better--advocating a rerurn to the educational policies of the 1950's that ruined American math. All in the name, of course, of "21st century skills." Read it, and if it starts to sound like a good idea, slap yourself and then read Robert Pondiscio's excellent commentary. Don't neglect the comments on Robert's post.
