Math doesn't add up





Laurie Rogers, parent and school volunteer, was just not hearing the answers that she expected. Laurie volunteered at her child’s school. She has a teaching and math background so it was natural that she would be interested in what they were doing with math at the school. What she saw got her digging deeper.  She researched until she found that the math scores in the district seemed to be in trouble. She tried to ask questions but felt she was getting the runaround. When she got meetings, she felt she got no answers. This is her story and what she did next.
