Eye On Olympia

But please, no caning…

State Rep. Glenn Anderson, R-Fall City, says he’s found a great way to make Washington students competitive in math: steal a page from the best.

Anderson’s House Bill 2506 notes that in 2003, America ranked below “at least 10 other countries” in math scores by elementary and middle school students.

His solution: to require schools to “incorporate the content, syllabus, sequence and curriculum framework implemented by the ministry of education in Singapore.”

The bill’s parked in the education committee.
