I was shocked to see that there are still schools beginning with Everyday Math. And Parentalcation proves another one of my suppositions: when it comes to public school, even though some administrations do their best to quash these innovations, many times it really does all depend on whether you get a good teacher. Public school parents have known this for ages and there is a cadre of parents who all compare notes and hope (and do more) for a specific teacher assignment. If you've heard any elementary school parents at the end of the summer, the conversation usually goes along these lines:
"Did you get your schedule?"
"What teacher did she get?"
