me to Morning Report thursday

To: morningreport@radionz.co.nz
It occurs to me that we may already be seeing the results of sub-national-standard maths teaching. Big-number statistics always result in a bell-curve, the left-hand end of which looks suspiciously like Anne Tolleys’ ‘Long Tail’. Whether the mass of pupils are raised or lowered in their achievement-per-year, there will always be the same bell-curve, and the same tail. Unless of course ‘Three Strikes And You’re Out’ is going to be introduced in Year 4.
