This morning I read another article that appeared to be arguing that we needed to stop teaching basic skills like long division, because tools like calculators are so ubiquitous, we don’t need those skills anymore.
I was thinking that a proper response was going to take an entire blog post of its own, but then I stumbled on this. Commandment #3 pretty much sums it up.
The others are pretty good too.
