Wake County math teachers, we need your input. We are a group of over 600 Wake County parents concerned about the new MVP math program. We believe that MVP limits the styles and methods teachers are allowed to use for teaching their students. We have seen and heard about irregular adoption of MVP across the county, which has led to irregular results. We also have concerns about the quality and fit to standards of the MVP workbooks and materials.
We know that some teachers are using MVP as a supplemental resource and their students are faring acceptably, while some teachers are following the mandates strictly "being true to the curriculum" and as a result many good students are struggling to learn and perform math fundamentals.
We believe that teachers' input regarding the selection and continued usage of the MVP program is being stifled by WCPSS and not welcome. We have already heard from several teachers anonymously, but want to broaden this input. You will not be alone if you speak out!! How is MVP working - or not working - for you? YOU DESERVE TO BE HEARD!
We believe our students deserve a balanced math education where teachers teach using a variety of methods suited to individual students, not an experience where teachers mainly only facilitate or maneuver groups of students into discovering the math for themselves, leaving little time for establishing and practicing fundamentals in the classroom.
Your name, school, and contact information will be kept confidential. However, we would like to use any input or comments provided - anonymously of course - in order to stop MVP in Wake County.
Thank you for all you do to serve our children.
