Jim C. Can you reply to this?

As a math teacher, I've seen how difficult algebra can be for high school kids. If they had been introduced to algebraic concepts earlier in school, I think they might do better in algebra. Most teachers and students do not understand that all higher level math is based on Calculus. Most of what we do in the K-12 math curriculum is prepare students for calculus, yet few students actually take calculus or apply the concepts in higher level math and science courses. In other countries in the world, students who will not use calculus are steered into careers that do not rely on math. We keep kids in an academic curriculum much longer in this country. As a result, most kids are expected to earn a college degree--and most do not expect to take calculus. In other countries in the world, even teachers and business majors take calculus. Any thoughts anyone?
