State School Board President Ted Mitchell Issues Statement on the Sacramento Superior Court's Ruling Related to Algebra I

State School Board President Ted Mitchell today issued a statement on the Sacramento Superior Court’s ruling related to Algebra I. This ruling impedes the state’s goal of increasing the number of students who master Algebra in 8th grade:

“Today’s court ruling is a roadblock to higher academic achievement in California. We intend to pursue all appropriate options for appealing this decision – and I am optimistic that the state of California will achieve its goal of helping all our school children successfully learn Algebra I in the eighth grade so that we may better prepare them to compete in today's global economy.”
