I am often the first in line to critique Jeff Johnson's handling of Education in Alberta, but I am also prepared to give him credit when credit is due. Jeff Johnson does a masterful job of explaining the nuances of PISA and Alberta's math curriculum.

It's 6 minutes long. Check it out.

Check out this petition that is in support of Alberta's math curriculum that focuses on understanding.
