The recommendation comes after 139 classroom observations and 3,000 parent survey responses about the controversial math curriculum that's been at the center of several parent and student protests.
It also sparked a lawsuit between a parent and the company that created the curriculum.
"Kids were actually engaged in productive struggle," said Hayden Lyons with MGT Consulting Group. "(The program) encourages critical thinking and strengthening of problem solving in students."
Some parents argue that their kids are suffering.
"It needs to be gone," said parent Carrie Bley.
"He (my son) didn't learn much," said parent Blain Dillard, who has been a strong opponent.
Dillard was sued by MVP after heavily criticizing the program and he fired back with a counter lawsuit.
The cases were dropped and Dillard's hoping the same will come of MVP.
"The teacher wasn't teaching, plain and simple," he said.
The program encourages students to think outside of the box and work together to solve real-world problems.
The consulting group did make some recommendations to improve the program and one is to provide supplementary resources to help kids.
"If you have to add a curriculum to a curriculum, that's not something worth saving," said Bley.
The suggestion was also made that some teachers need additional training to better implement MVP.
NEW: Consultants recommend @WCPSS RETAIN #MVP program, calling math curriculum “representative of best practices.” Support for #MVP based on 139 classroom observations & 3K parent survey responses, among other research. @ABC11_WTVD pic.twitter.com/uU0yQeT8Ig— Jonah Kaplan (@KaplanABC11) December 16, 2019
#MVP recommendation coming with lots of commendations as well. Clearly, the firm hired by @WCPSS concluding vocal outcry from some parents & students is exception & not the rule; encourages Board to run “informational campaign” to boost support. @ABC11_WTVD pic.twitter.com/rJMRKVXQtF— Jonah Kaplan (@KaplanABC11) December 16, 2019
The Wake County School Board has stuck by the program despite the outcry from families.
