Does Math Acceleration Work?

The Washington Post has an article that chronicles accelerated math students at the Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, Maryland (the school is billed as having a magnet program in math and science). The author asserts that students who had been accelerated from geometry to precalc but were needing remediation in Algebra II.

I don't know enough about the school to pass judgment, but the article's worth a read. Another battle in the math wars...
