Do the math

Dear Editor:

I am not surprised about the math issue in the Aspen School District.

When I started teaching here in 1971, I informed the middle school that in my public junior high, I was doing at the beginning of seventh grade what the kids here were doing in the middle of eighth grade.

Seems like in 40 years, not much progress has been made.
