The struggle to "fix" math education

It is not entirely new, but I just discovered it: a very nice little video from the National Science Foundation about “The struggle to ‘fix’ math education in the US”. The video is interesting from many perspectives, but for me it is particularly interesting because two of the three people that are featured in this film played an important role in the symposium where I gave my own presentation at this year’s AERA conference. Bill Schmidt was one of our two discussants, and Deborah Ball was chair of our session. Along with Joan Ferrini-Mundi from NSF, they raise some important issues for mathematics education research in this video:

The video was created in relation to the NSF special report, Math: What’s the problem?
