[IAEP] Mountain View school's "Teach to One" math learner software

The Mountain View school district apparently budgeted $521,000 to implement
and operate this new-fangled math program in two local schools (Graham and
Crittenden Middle Schools). Had they adequately beta tested the program
beforehand, the school district might have discovered that Teach to One
teaches math–we have observed–in a disjointed, non-linear and often erratic
fashion that leaves many students baffled and disenchanted with math. The
program contains errors in the math it teaches. Parents end up having to
teach kids math at home and make up for the program’s deficiencies. And all
the while, the math teachers get essentially relegated to “managing the
[Teach to One] program rather than to providing direct instruction”
