The new math
« on: March 02, 2021, 02:42:40 PM »

Here's the manifesto for teaching indoctrinatiing math-less math in schools:

Incredible. Instead of teaching students how to make change for a dollar, math teachers are supposed to create fabricate report about important mathematicians of color so their students of color can feel better about themselves while not learning anything useful.

FTFY

My daughter is a teacher. For the last several school years she has been teaching at mostly minority elementary schools, Last year a mostly black demographic, this year a mostly hispanic  student body. She says the spanish speakers are much more respectful and considerably less violent.
 She teaches science (her primary degree is biology) and social studies and has also taught math. The pathetically low priority of those three subjects frustrates her to no end and makes her heart sick. she has been told by administrators that "science just hasn't been/ isn't a high priority" and then watches the same bloviating administrators gushing about STEM on the news. Of course now, because "STEM" wasn't "inclusive" they have changed it to "STEAM" The A is for art.
I weep for the future of this country.

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

The only way to achieve a post-racial world of unity and brotherhood is to constantly divide everyone by making race the most important aspect of life.

I immediately noticed the "Latinx" bit.

My late wife was a Latina -- with an 'a' thank you very much. She had no problem identifying as a Latina (with an 'a'). I don't understand why Americans can't accept that Latinos have it all worked out:

Latino = male, singular.
Latina = female, singular
Latinos = males, plural, and plural mixed company
Latinas = females, plural

The SJWs obviously never heard of "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."

They seem to like breaking whatever they haven't already broken.
