Sham scheme to “eliminate racism” dumbs down math students

Who knew math was “capitalist, imperialist, and racist”?

Today we’re taking our readers directly to a head-spinning example of the lunacy that leftist billionaire Bill Gates is funding through the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The Washington Examiner tops its crucial exposé with these words: Gates Foundation behind effort to end white supremacy in math instruction by eliminating need for students to show work.”

No kidding.

This opinion piece by Jeremy Beaman explains The “Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction” which is best described as racist.

The actual guidelines to the Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction uses these descriptive words, claiming to facilitate an ”Integrated approach to mathematics that centers Black, Latinx, and Multilingual students in grades 6-8, addresses barriers to math equity, and aligns instruction to grade-level priority standards.” The site includes “5 Strides on the Path to Math Equality,” each with its own download

Rather than focusing on one correct answer, the program encourages math teachers to “come up with at least two answers that might solve a problem.”

It continues with this indecipherable jargon: “Challenge standardized test questions by getting the ‘right’ answer, and justify other answers by unpacking the assumptions that are made in the problem.”

The scheme also encourages teachers to “center ethnomathematics,” which includes a variety of guidelines. One of them instructs educators to “identify and challenge the ways that math is used to uphold capitalist, imperialist, and racist views.”

The consequences of this radicalism passing as education can’t be overstated. A catastrophe is first invading America’s far left, educrat-run classrooms* and will then envelop our nation unless we expose and eradicate it now.

    B-b-b-b-ut wouldn’t it be intolerant (as WELL as racist?) to insist that there be only one correct answer to a math problem? Insistence on absolute truth in mathematics, or anything else, is blatantly unacceptable in today’s enlightened age, after all….. /S

    Lots of good information packed in today’s post. Thanks for the education on this topic on a I was not up to speed. The Gates’ plan sounds incredibly racist to me. The overarching theme is that minority math students are not able to be held to the same standard as others. Gates must not have heard of renown economics professors Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams (both with PhDs) or economist Charles Payne.

    Vast wealth doesn’t bestow common sense. The Gates’ are extremists who recently advised Americans to eat artificial beef…after he invested in a vegan meat company!

    The poor, underpaid teachers were very generous to Hunter Biden’s colluding dad Joe Biden (also known as the “Big Guy” to the Ukrainians) who were paying Hunter $50,000 a month to sit on a natural gas company board, though he didn’t speak Ukrainian and had no energy experience. They wanted access to his politically connected former-VP dad. It certainly wasn’t because the Biden’s were brilliant.

    Every teacher I’ve ever known (including those in my own family) are far left extremists, who have no common sense. The problem is they spend more time influencing American children than most of their own parents do.

    Socialist Bernie Sanders and faux Cherokee Elizabeth Warren also were supported by the teacher’s unions.

    Teachers, who are being paid for staying home, are still moaning and groaning about returning to the classroom, though all evidence points to the fact that children are not coronavirus transmitters.

    They need to be given an ultimatum like the one Pres. Reagan gave to the striking PATCO unionists…go back to your air traffic controlling jobs within 48 hours, or there won’t be a job to return to.

      Reagan was the precursor to Donald Trump. But Donald Trump did him one better…he was responsible for adding three conservatives on the US Supreme Court. Reagan gave us the disappointing Sandra O’Connor, who was never a conservative and was often a thorn in our side.
