"Meeting the Challenge of Change"
The recommendations of "The Mathematics Education of Teachers" will evoke varied responses both within and among the groups to which it is addressed. Efforts to implement the recommendations require anticipating the challenges of the change they call for and developing strategies to meet those challenges on a local and global level. In the process, we who undertake such efforts are called upon to become learners ourselves, yet again.
