E-math classes: One community’s approach to help kids make the grade

Print

Edina High School principal W. Bruce Locklear was talking about “math deficient” students, those kids who have failed or are at-risk of failing math graduation standards tests and thus likely to leave school without a diploma.   


And, since it reflected a grain of truth, he was using a little humor with his audience at a recent Association of Metropolitan School Districts meeting.


“Inevitably we were waiting on some divine intervention to teach them math and it wasn’t working,” Locklear said wryly.
