NCTM and the development of mathematics education in the US

NCTM is a huge organization for teachers of mathematics in the US, and it has certainly had a strong impact through the years. Michael Paul Goldenberg - author of the blog: Rational Mathematics Education - has written a very long and interesting article where he criticize this grand organization. For me - a Norwegian researcher with both legs planted firmly in Europe - this provides an interesting insight into the US discourse. I recommend reading the article, whether you agree with his views or not!
