teachers respond
We faxed our report on 2007 6th grade
Math programs to 1100+ Texas school
districts and received 101 requests for
more info – a nice response rate.

Some districts were silent on our
6th grade findings, but teachers at
other levels asked for our reviews,
which was indirect positive feedback.
"Thank you so much for your quick reply to my request. Also, please let your staff know that my math teachers and I appreciate all of the work your group put into this. It gave great credence to our debates and the choice we made. I think I will be able to sleep again."

"THANKS! I have received the infor­mation. I didn't realize I was going to get such superior service. I appreciate your efforts and they will weigh in on my decision for purchas­ing textbooks."

"Thanks for this helpful information."

"We have received a copy of your Texas 6th grade Math textbook rating and would like a copy of your 7th and 8th grade review. The 6th grade was very interesting. Thanks for taking the time to research the textbooks. … I have a question: Why are y'all doing this comparison? It is really helpful for us. We are so glad you have done this. We have talked about going to different sales presentations and they all have very good sales pitches. It is hard to pick the best. Thanks for all your work."
