Rest in Peace Jaime Escalante

I heard on npr this morning that jaime escalante died yesterday. truly a loss to the world of mathematics education.

then slashdot led me to this article about the math program at garfield high, and what happened to it after escalante moved on. it’s a good read, though a bit sad that such a great program seems to have fallen on hard times.

jaime, rest in peace. you did some amazing work. thank you.
