    Contact your state legislator and state senator to express your concerns. Talk to other parents and get a group together to attend school board meetings. Outside of that, many parents are opting to send their children to private school or to homeschool. You can supplement the math at school using homeschool curriculum or online learning. There are so many children who are struggling like yours.
