Did You Know All These Math Credentials Existed?

I didn't.
Executive Summary: This agenda item continues the discussion begun at the October 2008 Commission meeting related to the teaching of mathematics in California. The focus of this item is the authorization statements for documents that authorize the teaching of
mathematics.

Oh ... Many moons ago, I got a BS in mathematics. But I never took education classes. Is that what happens when you mate math with education?

Most of those appear to be more "education" than "math" :-)

This is an obvious example of Pournelle's Iron Law of Bureaucracy.

Note that the education establishment is consuming more and more tax money doing this kind of garbage, while accomplishing less and less real education.

So long as we allow massive numbers of drones to infect the system we will see more and more of this.
