Math education in the Times Op-Ed

There's an interesting Op-Ed piece by Sol Garfunkel and David Mumford in today's New York Times, arguing that high school math education should be contextual or applied, rather than pure. There's something to be said for their point of view, though I do disagree with their example about Latin. What do you think? Discuss in the comments.
