770 CHQR, Calgary – Third Party Monitoring in Alberta Math Education

Audio, Michael C. Zwaagstra

Senior Fellow Michael Zwaagstra is interviewed by Danielle Smith about the recent controversial motion made by newly elected trustee Lisa Davis seeking to create “third-party math monitoring” to ensure students achieve the learning improvements they deserve in math through shared best practices among teachers themselves.

Critics argue that this would be overstepping the boundaries that allow teachers the freedom and expertise to do their jobs.
