Algebra 2 for all - no

And now for a thenews. Palo Alto math teachers oppose requiring Algebra II to graduate.

No one can argue that Palo Alto, home of Stanford, is opposed to education. But the math department of Palo Alto High School says
Don't prepare all students for University of California entrance, the math faculty argues, because not all students can master quadratic equations and logarithmic functions.


Here in Georgia we have taken away the relevant math that would help those who are NOT going to college and replaced it with topics that they have trouble assimilating so the they have trouble graduating from high school.
