America’s Ailing Algebra Skills

Sep 20, 2011 Published under Education/Raising Children, United States

Daniel’s good friend pointed us towards an important cause: America is currently facing an education crisis, where 1/3 of current eighth grade students will not graduate college, and one of the biggest causes is that kids lack fundamental Algebra skills.  Sylvan, a learning center for kids of all ages, has stepped up to the challenge with the Algebra Fitness Challenge, a free Algebra test that kids can take to identify their strengths and weaknesses in the subject.  This tool hopes to begin to solve the extant algebra problem, and can be taken at Fit 4 Algebra.
