    Exclamation CA next state to teach "Equitable Math" because 2+2=4 is white supremacy

    California Weighs ‘Equitable Math’: Goal of Obtaining Correct Answer Is Racist

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2...answer-racist/

    Dr. Susan Berry 15 Apr 2021

    The California education department is considering implementing a statewide math framework that promotes the concept that working to figure out a correct answer in math is an example of racism and white supremacy invading the classroom.

    The framework, titled “A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction: Dismantling Racism in Mathematics Instruction,” is intended to be “exercises for educators to reflect on their own biases to transform their instructional practice.”

    The “Equitable Math” website states its training manual was funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the primary private source of funding for the Common Core State Standards.

    “White supremacy culture infiltrates math classrooms in everyday teacher actions,” the document states. “Coupled with the beliefs that underlie these actions, they perpetuate educational harm on Black, Latinx, and multilingual students, denying them full access to the world of mathematics.”

    The proposed California framework provides examples of how “white supremacy culture” has infiltrated math classes in schools:

    The focus is on getting the “right” answer.

    Independent practice is valued over teamwork or collaboration.

    “Real-world math” is valued over math in the real world.

    Students are tracked (into courses/pathways and within the classroom).

    Participation structures reinforce dominant ways of being.

    Additionally, the document asserts the means by which teachers assess student learning in math is based on white supremacy culture, as demonstrated by:

    Students are required to “show their work.”

    Grading practices are focused on lack of knowledge.

    Language acquisition is equated with mathematical proficiency.

    The proposed California framework continues:

    These common practices that perpetuate white supremacy culture create and sustain institutional and systemic barriers to equity for Black, Latinx, and Multilingual students. In order to dismantle these barriers, we must identify what it means to be an antiracist math educator.

    In order to embody antiracist math education, teachers must engage in critical praxis that interrogates the ways in which they perpetuate white supremacy culture in their own classrooms, and develop a plan toward antiracist math education to address issues of equity for Black, Latinx, and multilingual students.

    In the section that criticizes the concept of “getting the ‘right’ answer” in math, the document states:

    The concept of mathematics being purely objective is unequivocally false, and teaching it is even much less so. Upholding the idea that there are always right and wrong answers perpetuate objectivity [sic] as well as fear of open conflict [sic].

    Some in the education field are sounding the alarm about the “Equitable Math” framework.

    According to Fox News, Lori Meyers, co-founder of Educators for Quality and Equality, said her organization sent a letter to California education officials, expressing its members are “deeply concerned about the draft 2021 CA Mathematics Framework, which contains discriminatory and divisive content that will impede us from accomplishing” important goals in math instruction.

    “We ask that the state provide us with a mathematics framework that reflects sound, research-based practices over political ideology,” Meyers’ group added.

    In February, the Oregon Department of Education defended its instruction of teachers via the “Equitable Math” training manual in how to teach mathematics by dismantling as “racist” the longstanding view of objectivity in math, as exemplified by the idea that one must obtain a correct answer to a math problem.

    Breitbart News reported on the same “Equitable Math” manual:

    The manual enumerates signs of “white supremacy culture in the mathematics classroom,” which include a focus on “getting the right answer,” an emphasis on “real-world math,” teaching math in a “linear fashion,” students being required to “show their work,” and grading students based on their demonstrated knowledge of the material.

    “In order to embody antiracist math education, teachers must engage in critical praxis that interrogates the ways in which they perpetuate white supremacy culture in their own classrooms,” the manual declares, “and develop a plan toward antiracist math education to address issues of equity for Black, Latinx, and multilingual students.”

    Similarly in physics,

    The "work-energy theorem" that says kinetic energy is determined by the amount of work done.... will need to be thrown out.

    "Working" is a racist concept invented by slaveowners.

    Kinetic energy is now determined by how many children you have by the time you're 17
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Math could be racist, I suppose. Engineering could be racist. But the laws of physics...



    ...are color blind as all hell. We all bleed red.

    I can guarantee one thing. No matter what color he or she is, by this definition your banker will always be a white supremacist. I have a different definition. Bankers are greenback supremacists. And trust me, greenback supremacists can and do add and subtract correctly.

    So kids will now be taught:

    5 is greater than 4 only because it's been privileged to be.

    The proof that there is no largest prime number was set down by a dead white guy named Euclid and is an example of the suppression of the white patriarchy that seeks to deny the right of a number to be the largest prime.

    You don't need to show your work because your teacher has the extraordinary ability to discern whether you really got the answer on your own or whether you just copied the answer from someone else because you hadn't paid attention in class, didn't learn anything, and had no clue about how to proceed to answer the question.

    Grading practices won't be focused on the lack of knowledge because everyone will pass and be promoted up to the next grade. After all, giving someone a failing grade just because he or she constantly gives wrong answers is obviously racist.

    Even if you're black and you counted on your fingers, it doesn't mean 2+2=4. Your fingers are half racist.

    Isn't it nice to know that eliminating white supremacy doesn't mean less overdoses for minorities, but rather more for whites?

    That's compassion. That's progress. That's so liberal even Stalin would be proud.

    Of course, liberals will say computers will save us. Computer programmers, on the other hand, like to say, "Garbage in, garbage out."

    Hate to inform y'all but public school has always been a POS. All public school is about dumbing you down- this is just more BS- nothing new.

    And, everyone learns differently & has the right to pursue their interests w/o the fed telling them what is important & what they should be "learning."

    Actually, UBI involves a Lorentz factor which takes us out of classical Newtonian Marxism and into Marxism at relativistic velocities.

    Thus, UBI = ( γ - 1)m0c2

    Interesting thing I learned in an eduction program I help with, is that all students who have a problem with math, never learned to subtract correctly. Every student (black, white, green or blue) who learned to actually subtract, became quite good in math. Crazy, eh?

    Do they still teach how to check your subtraction by adding the difference to the subtrahend and seeing if it equals the minuend? (After more decades than I care to recall, I still remember those terms.)
