Our 7th & 8th grade math curriculum just purchased new textbooks to meet the CCSS for their grades. However, we have many parents who also want us to include a Pre-Algebra and Algebra curriculum in order to have students ready for high school math. In the Chicago area, our students have to take high school selective enrollment tests in order to get into the top high schools in our city. Parents are concerned that the CCSS is not enough. Our question is whether the CCSS will have our top students ready for higher level high school math?
