Working with schools

Alan H. Schoenfeld has written an article that was published in the March issue of American Mathematical Monthly. The article has been entitled: Working with Schools: The Story of a Mathematics Education Collaboration. Here is a copy of the article abstract:

Working for meaningful mathematical change in the schools isn’t easy. There are issues of politics, turf, and sometimes unreasonable expectations on the part of the school district and the volunteers who work with it. But with good intentions, goodwill, and tenacity, there are ways to make a difference. This paper describes some of the ups, the downs, and the ultimate progress in a collaboration between U.C. Berkeley and the Berkeley Unified School district. It offers lessons to mathematicians who want to understand and/or work with their local schools.
