On a completely different topic, in regards to a local private school district cutting out funding for all of its intermediate unit math programs (intermediate programs being those that give students extra help where they need it), the intermediate unit assistant executive director Dwight Laufman said one of the dumbest things I've read recently, "He said reading can help a student in various disciplines, including math." Uh, you know, students having trouble with math often can already read the book on the subject -- they need the EXTRA help that the program promises.
Well, this is in the district near my house. Perhaps I should go volunteer to fill the math gap up there on weekends after I'm physically able enough to do so. I mean, really, this sort of crap angers me.
