After watching last nights  Melrose School Board meeting on MTV I cant help but ask why has the administration including Superintendent Joe Casey not done something about the source of the seventh grade math problem. It was called the white elephant in the room. As a MVMMS parent we all are aware who the elephant is. I have to ask why hasn't he been fired? This has gone on for years and nothing has been done about it. The test scores clearly show that the instruction by one teacher in particular is not doing his job. For my own child it was a lost year for seventh grade math, I ended up having to hire an expensive private tutor and my son has disliked math ever since. How many more of our students must receive this substandard math education due to this seventh grade math teacher.
