I just finished tutoring a young man who is attending Nassau Community College. The math he is doing is math my geometry kids could do in a heartbeat. Well, they would need a little bit of help with the fractions, but I know they could be taught to use their calculators to help overcome this obstacle. After being with this student, a boy who graduated from a high school in the Five Towns area of Long Island, I have a little more hope for my students. I also have a lot more faith in my school. Packemin HS does not have the technology the Five Towns HS has. Packemin does not have classes as small as the Five Town HS has. Packemin HS is doing a better job of educating its students than Five Towns HS.
