TASA Offers Recommendations to Address Concerns About Revised Math TEKS

11.16.2014 — Due to concerns about the implementation of the revised TEKS for math in kindergarten through eighth grade this year, the State Board of Education's Committee on Instruction will discuss the issue at its meeting on Thursday.

While concerns have been expressed that, in some cases, the content is not developmentally appropriate at the designated grade level, the general consensus is that we must continue to raise the bar on student performance and these standards, when fully implemented, will boost student performance in mathematics.

Based on feedback from administrators, classroom teachers, curriculum specialists, and ESC personnel, TASA has shared the following observations and recommendations with SBOE chair Barbara Cargill in response to her request for suggestions.
