Our middle school has just bought a program like you are asking about,  
although I'm not involved in it.  I know it covers reading, but I think it 
has a math component, too.  It is web-based.  I won't be in school tomorrow, 
but I'll check Tuesday.  If you don't hear from me in a few days, please 
remind me...

Those who practice teaching do not for the most part succumb to cynicism or 
indifference--the children are far too immediate and real for the teachers to 
become callous--but, most of the school systems being what they are, can 
teachers fail to come to suffer first despair and then deep resignation?
