Kentucky Promotes Use of MathML in Textbook Adoption
It is always nice to be the bearer of good news. Well...I've got GREAT news today! The Kentucky Department of Education has announced that the state will grant preferential procurement status to math textbook titles submitted by publishers who use Mathematical Markup Language (MathML). That's right -- publishers who create digital math content using MathML will get a leg up in the competition over textbooks made the old fashioned way with graphic images. And the reason, of course, is accessibility. So, for all you advocates of math accessibility out there, here's a reason to celebrate!
Kentucky's move to promote math accessibility is something every state should put into place. So be sure to tell your state education leaders about Kentucky's progress on getting accessible math in the classroom. Will your state be next? With your help, it can be!
