Yet another blow to Constructivism!

Is the pendulum swinging back?

Check out this article originally from the Wall Street Journal on how the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics has abandoned their open-ended, problem-solving, "fuzzy math" approach.

It just makes me giggle.

9-11

Today has been interesting for me. As I drove into work, I found myself crying as I listened to the radio and they replayed reports from 9-11-2001. Then, as I read the news, it hit me even more. Now I don't know if anyone even reads this blog, and I don't really care if anyone who does agrees with me, but watch this video taken by some people who lived next to the World Trade Center (and didn't release until today) and tell me we're not at war.

Unbelievable.

I just pray that as Americans we haven't forgotten too much in the last five years and when elections come this November we elect those who want to protect us and our interests rather than weaken us.
