Everyday Math has its critics and its fans. Keep in mind that any program can only be as good as the teachers are trained in it. Are you on the curriculum committee? What are your concerns? What other programs are they looking at?

Here are a couple recent posts about the same subject:

And you can Google the words "Everyday Math" or other programs like Singapore Math or Indian Math and get an idea what people have to say.

Everyday Mathematics is the curriculum of choice in schools across the country. To read a discussion about its pros and cons, go to http://learninginmaine.blogspot.com/.

The United States Coalition for World Class Math is a group dedicated to strengthening our country's math standards and will provide you with plenty of information to help you identify curricula other than Everyday Math that have produced better test results:

Everyday Math has good intention, but there are gaps in training, online tutoring services like tutorteddy.com can fill those gaps. . Every American student has the capability to complete their school and hold postsecondary degrees. They have the expertise and talent. Tutorteddy.com helps to bring that out by providing them all essential helps at the most reasonable cost. There are many students in our country, who can't continue with their studies due to lack of proper guidance and poor financial background. Some of them offer online math scholarship program to help deserving underprivileged American students learning math at free of cost.
