The Math Department of Weston High School & Middle School was featured in a report on last night’s NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams! Be sure to watch all the way to the end (it’s only two and half minutes), not only to see two of my colleagues and their students but also to hear the closing remarks:
Rehema Ellis: Every expert we talked to says that if America wants better math test results, there have to be better math teachers. But they’re in high demand, and even with smaller classes and new innovations, to get the best person at the head of the class it’s no surprise that schools will have to make financial investments in those teachers.
Brian Williams: There’s no shortage of evidence out there.
