Hoover Institution about California's Math Standards Before Common Core
Williamson M. Evers, Ze’ev Wurman

Common Core Standards ruined California's top notch math standards.  The goal should be to have students starting Algebra I by 8th grade.  "Not every student was ready, but every student who was ready was given a chance to excel and forge ahead, with lasting benefits. And this gave them the opportunity to make it to pre-calculus and calculus in high school, which would prepare them for selective colleges and STEM," if that was their goal. 

It's good to keep that door open even if students initially want to go into the trades or the humanities as they are still developing their interests and may change course during college.  The Utah electricians union requires a math test.  The better prepared, the better the results.
