WTOP: "We've copped out" says Blair teacher

WTOP's Kate Ryan reports on the findings of Governor Martin O'Malley's STEM* Task Force with comments from Montgomery Blair High School magnet teacher David Stein.

In Kate Ryan's first report we hear Stein say;
"We've copped out, instead of learning 5th grade math at a rigorous level we're just putting kids into 6th grade math in 5th grade."
In her second report, Stein says focus has been on "minimal competency" and gives recommendations for changes to curriculum.

Hear both parts of Kate Ryan's report: Part 1 and Part 2

*STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Math
