(THE COLLEGE FIX) -- A curriculum company is suing “one of the most vocal” critics of its math program, a parent from North Carolina who has blasted its use in his son’s school.
The Mathematics Vision Project accused Blain Dillard, whose son attends school in the Wake County school district, of “libel, slander, and ‘tortious interference with business relations,’” according to Education Week. MVP cited an instance where Dillard claimed online that improvements in math scores following use of its program were “fabricated or falsified,” in addition to “analysis of student achievement data” and “results of informal teacher polling” Dillard had made on blogs.
Dillard’s attorney Jeffrey Hunt said the lawsuit “has no legal merit.”
