The Joint resolution calls for the following:
Direct the Kentucky Department of Education to use the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics report recommendations to revise mathematics core content standards and materials in grades prekindergarten through grade 12 by August 2009, and revise math assessments accordingly by the 2009-2010 school year.
I suspect the adoption of NCTM standards would be well received. But somebody will have to tell me what "revise math assessments accordingly" means.
If this is leverage to support a new version of Senate Bill 1, it may be enough to kill an otherwise good idea. But if that phrase is open to interpretation by KDE, perhaps not.
