I see a growing population of homeschoolers, private schoolers, and tutors picking up the slack.
It may be branded as "equity" with those with soft heads but it's more than likely caused by so many poorly educated teachers unable to keep up with gifted kids. This isn't so much an IUSD issue but outside of the Orange Curtain the quality level of teachers today is extraordinarily low.

In a detracking initiative, New York City’s school districts stopped teaching “regular” or “advanced” classes in middle school, and instead provided all students with content it previously labeled as “advanced.” Researchers surveyed students in six cohorts for three years. The cohorts included three working in tracks and three following years when students worked in heterogeneous classes. The researchers found that the students who worked without advanced classes took more advanced math, enjoyed math more, and passed the state test in New York a year earlier than students in tracks. Further, researchers showed that the advantages came across the achievement spectrum for low and high achieving students

I was never a fan of common core.

Someone responded on Twitter the following: That it doesn’t get rid of calculus. It remains an elective. It doesn’t get rid of 8th grade algebra, they have integrated math that suppose to be harder or includes Algebra?
