You might remember an article I wrote a few months ago about a new rule requiring California schools to test all eighth graders in algebra. Educators in San Diego had mixed feelings about the rule, worrying that it imposed the classes too quickly and without funding the ramped-up math instruction that schools would need to make it work.
But it looks like the rule will be on hold: A Sacramento judge is planning to block the algebra requirement, according to the Sacramento Bee:
The California School Boards Association and the Association of California School Administrators sued to overturn the mandate in September. A final ruling is expected later today or early next week.
