The touchy issue of providing rigorous math options for Wake County's academically gifted students, particularly in middle school, is raising its head again.
As noted in today's article, a group of parents of AG fifth-grade students is complaining about how the new Common Core math curriculum isn't challenging enough. But what really steams this is how Wake is handling the issue of single-subject math acceleration for this fall.
These parents, who will meet with school administrators Thursday, aren't happy about what they're being asked to do at this last minute to get their kids accelerated into Common Core Math 7. They were recommended for Common Core Math 6 Plus.
