We should do something to help our children to compete with the international students. Our children are good, intelligent and smart. They can do better; accelerate innovation by having more challenging Math curriculum like Tutorteddy or Saxon to match the exceptional level of intelligence; we need to introduce a math program that will increase the expectation of what our young generation can achieve.
