Dear readers from Alberta: we encourage you to read and consider signing this petition. We have found that this kind of thing makes a difference, particularly if it receives broad support and you don’t give up. Between the two years of concentration in Math in the PISA assessment, 2003 and 2012, Alberta has seen the largest numerical decline in scores among the provinces: 31 points, exceeded only by Manitoba at 36 points. Since we started a petition in Manitoba two years ago, the Manitoba provincial ministry has been convinced to roll back some of the fuzzier aspects of the curriculum (bringing back the standard algorithms and memorization of math facts). If enough of you get behind Nhung’s petition you will make a difference in Alberta!
