It is my sincere hope that this idea never is passed as a CCSS-M amendment or addendum.
It is hard enough to teach advanced students pre-calculus, which is a requirement for all students.
Calculus should be an option to anyone who desires a future in STEM careers. We should continue to encourage students to pursue this route, but by no means should we demand or require that All students enroll and pass Calculus.
We should identify those students (and work on HOW we identify those students) to enjoy and want to enroll in advanced math and science courses.
But to require ALL enroll in Calculus while in HS is ludicrous, though I clearly understand the desire to "make" those ready and able to enroll in Calculus, do so.
