ab: This case study focuses on only one part of California’s reform efforts,
it is helpful to have some knowledge of California’s diverse
population and geography; how California’s education system works and
where the authority for education resides; some of the history of
curriculum recommendations in the recent past; and how a multiplicity
of efforts in the state is being orchestrated to bring about change in
mathematics education. The study of mathematics education reform in
California reveals some of the basic constraints that are operable in,
as well as the mechanisms available to, any state attempting to
generate change. California represents a massive effort to further
statewide reform in mathematics education while giving every student
fair access to mathematics. California provides a rich case for study
because of its attempts to align policy and practice.
