The US Math Recovery® Board of Directors has made it a practice to begin with and to refer to our mission throughout our meetings. As part of our strategic planning efforts in August, we revisited our mission more closely to verify that it does reflect the purpose of the US Math Recovery Council®. Although the sentiment remains the same, you may notice that it has evolved into a slightly different format. When asked about US Math Recovery Council's® mission, people were often able to state the critical ideas but found it somewhat difficult to quote. After minor crafting and adjustments, the Board of Directors voted to approve the newly reformatted, more easily quoted mission.
The mission of the US Math Recovery Council® is
To transform numeracy education
To connect research with practice
To empower educators to advance student mathematical thinking and success
...through Math Recovery® principles.
Mahatma Gandhi said, "A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith in their mission can alter the course of history." May you feel the fire of determination and commitment in the mission of the US Math Recovery Council®.
