RIP Jaime Escalante

[ #40282 ]
Jaime Escalante, America's best math teacher, passed away last night. Escalante built a spectacular mathematics program in a struggling inner-city school district, teaching disadvantaged children all the way through Advanced Placement Calculus. His story was depicted in the 1988 film Stand and Deliver. I've got to say this man was really one of my personal heroes. When Sarah and I started talking about homeschooling our children it was thoughts of Mr. Escalante that made me get really serious about the kind of education our children could have with us directing.
