Math Has Nothing To Do With Social Justice

In dopey California, the state was about to adopt a Mathematics Social Justice Curriculum, which of course would mean PC BS when 1,100 top Mathematicians and Scientists penned a letter to the state department of education demanding that they cease and desist.  The good news is that the state postponed implementation pending further study for now.  But knowing the National Socialist Fascists in California that don't want kids of color held to rigorous standards, the odds are pretty good that they will be back in the name of "social justice" destroying the math curriculum in the process.  In addition, some school districts in California are in the process of eliminating grades of D or F for all subjects; another stupid idea.  

This is at a time when US Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona recently gave a speech complaining that not enough kids of color were studying STEM, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.  The same could be said for White kids. What this education bureaucrats fails to understand is that half the kids in the country cannot read or do math at grade level and many are way below grade level.  How in the hell can these kids study STEM, which are the most difficult subjects in school when they can't read or do math at grade level.  And, the fact is that many kids at grade level don't take these courses either because they are uninspired by their teachers, or because they are hard.  Well Dah!

The video generation needs to be entertained and since STEM is tough stuff, they tend to study easier subjects.  In fairness, though this blogger read real adult level books from the time I was 8 years old, math was never my subject.  I gravitated toward foreign languages, which came easy and history.  In any case, California attempting to dumb down math and other subjects in accordance with "social justice" PC BS is great news for China; but very bad news for our country.  We have got to get serious about academic achievement in our public schools.  First, we must deal with the fact that half the kids in the country cannot read or do math at grade level.  Woke School Boards, administrators and teachers focused on PC BS who fail to get the job done must be FIRED.  

We have got to face down teacher unions to demand more accountability.  We need School Choice so all parents in failing schools can get their kids into private schools that do a better job.  Public schools are failing to educate many children today.  Adding a PC BS Social Justice component to math and other subjects that is nothing more than Socialist propaganda that includes Critical Race Theory Marxist, racist, revisionist history indoctrination and compliance with the LGBTQIA agenda will only make matters worse.
