HI Chris,
 
I suggest you focus on what NCLB is focusing: reading, mathematic and science. The problem is neither reading nor mathematic teachers have traditionally been heavy video users. This very well may be a problem of treatment. I don't want a talking head with a blackboard doing the same thing a teacher can do.
 
Regarding mathematics in Iowa, the state is pushing  "problems" which can be solved in a variety of ways. Almost, using science situations to teach mathematics. For example, two different pulleys are connect by a belt. What is the ratio between the turns of the larger pulley to the smaller pulley?
