2 school years ago, Clover Park switched from Terc/Investigations to State recommended Math Connections in grades 1 through 5.  After the change came a huge improvement. Seattle has now been attempting to make Everyday Math work since fall of 2007 and scores keep getting worse for low income students when viewed by comparison with state low income scores.

CPSD has 60+% low income students
vs. Seattle’s 40+% low income.
