I missed this a couple of weeks ago when Education Week reported that “Publishers Get Poor Marks on Common-Core Math Texts.”
The story covered a new analysis of high school math textbooks from EdReports.org.
Of particular note to Kentucky, Pearson Publishers is among the companies getting low scores for the alignment of their math textbooks to the Common Core State Standards now used in Kentucky. This might be important because Pearson also creates Kentucky’s KPREP math tests for Grades 3 to 8. If Pearson doesn’t get its math textbooks right, could there be problems with the math tests, as well?
