2+2 does NOT equal 4

If you think that 2+2=4, then you are obviously a white supremacist.
Can we apply this method to reparations as well then?

A new quote from her:

Teaching
I teach secondary mathematics methods courses to students who are undergraduates in mathematics and seeking a minor in Education. I also teach a large undergraduate seminar on Social Justice, Schooling, and Society that is open to students from all disciplines, not just education.
For practicing teachers and graduate students in the College of Education, I teach courses in sociopolitical perspectives on mathematics and science education, urban education, and the Mathematics Science and Engineering Pro-seminar that prepares graduate students to write research articles and understand the publishing process.

No wonder all those protesting snowflakes are so ignorant...
Read the whole thing.

Fourth Grade Teacher Details How Schools Push Ban History And Leftist Agendas

SNIP:
In supervising fourth grade, she teaches a little bit of everything: math, reading, language arts, social studies, and science. Recently, her school district, like many others, switched to an “integrated curriculum.” On paper, an integrated curriculum sounds like a fair idea. Students learn subjects by exploring their intersections to deepen understanding. In practice, however, the curriculum all but eradicates history while working to push politics on impressionable children.

As the teacher reports, “It says ‘integrated curriculum,’ and some of its science, and some of its social studies but it really isn’t. It’s more of a push for the progressive movement.” Indeed, it’s a movement that has fundamentally altered her curriculum. As the school district’s new curricula are online, outsiders have the ability to dictate curriculum to teachers. The result? This teacher’s science and history classes were gutted.


With the removal of important foundational skills and basic subjects, one would think the school district parents would be up-in-arms about the schools’ curriculum shift. Conservative parents especially should be fighting the school’s attempted indoctrination of their children. However, they are unable to have opinions on their children’s education, because they have no idea what’s happening.

The parents don’t even know what’s going on because it’s all at school. We hardly give homework anymore, which is so frustrating. I just disagree with a lot of things, but they keep it in school so that the parents don’t have to worry. The parents question very little and they just assume the teacher knows what they’re doing.

With limited homework, parents lack a window into what is being taught to their children. Likewise, the students are losing an important aspect of early education — drilling foundational subjects, like basic math, in order to better understand in the future.

Math is the most important subject for kids to learn BY FAR. Only dumb losers would have a take like what these morons were tweeting. My God, what has become of this country?!?!?

I have been assured that this type of b.s. doesn't occur in math and science.
In some places, apparently, it is....

Parents Should #WalkAway From Public Schools Unwilling to Educate AZ Kids

SNIP:
Even more infuriating is the “solution” now being offered to parents that require in person schooling to address their work/life situations. Rather than open up for learning, several school districts are now offering paid childcare services.

That’s right – residents already paying over half of their state taxes to education are now expected to pay to have their kids in school to not learn.   Representatives of the teachers’ union claim it is too risky to teach kids in a classroom, but apparently it is plenty safe to not teach them in a classroom.

Parents and kids deserve better than this.

I just noted that I never saw anything political in math and science classes and it's difficult to envision making them political, to me, but eliminating them entirely is one way I suppose.

I think these are unusual and rare "voices" that are distinct outliers.

https://www.thecollegefix.com/economics-professor-barred-from-teaching-class-critical-of-marxism-to-student-body/


SNIP:
‘If faculty want to preach that Marxism is a triumph of human thought, so be it. If other faculty want to argue that actually it was a disaster, and a crime against humanity, this view should no longer be fanatically censored’

A longtime economics professor at Wright State University who has repeatedly requested permission to teach a class critical of Marxism has been rebuffed by his bosses and peers who appear unwilling to allow the topic to be taught to the general student population.


“That my department is full of extremists who probably don’t belong in a business-college economics department, to be sure, is a manifestation of academic freedom,” Osborne told The College Fix via email. “And I do not want to change how economics is taught at WSU, broadly speaking. I just want my academic freedom to offer a different view to also be respected.”

And the same at another school.....

Laurie Rubel, a professor of math education at Brooklyn College, argued on Twitter that 2+2=4 “reeks of white supremacist patriarchy” on Twitter.
