Wow, now not even math and science subjects are safe from the insanity. Here we have the next level of indoctrination to make sure they even taint middle-school math with leftest political stupidity.

When can we separate leftest propaganda political agendas from education? Seriously.

Their propaganda is frighteningly apparent. Seriously, look at this insanity:




“For centuries, mathematics has been used as a dehumanizing tool,” they write, citing the example of how IQ can be used against people who score in the lower half of the distribution. To remedy math’s contribution to oppression, teachers are thus encouraged to think of ways that math can be used to advocate for marginalized populations


Teachers learn to use math as Trojan horse for social justice

www.campusreform.org...




Teach for America and EdX are partnering to provide a training course for middle-school math teachers on how to incorporate social justice into their curricula.

According to the course developers, regular math is "too abstract" for many students, and incorporating social justice can help them better understand "the power and meaning" of math.

“Do you ask students to think deeply about global and local social justice issues within your mathematics classroom?” a course overview asks. “This education and teacher training course will help you blend secondary math instruction with topics such as inequity, poverty, and privilege to transform students into global thinkers and mathematicians.”

Heaven forbid you simply give children the ability to discern the facts for themselves. It's unthinkable to focus on giving kids critical reasoning skills instead of indoctrination. After all, they might look for themselves and see how much bunk the social justice jihadis are peddling and—*GASP!*—not conform!

No, they'll use any inroads they can get to manipulate our children's minds. Joseph Stalin once said, "Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed."

The Stalinists in the social justice ranks seem to agree.

Teaching how to think versus teaching what to think.

Its not that it's evil per say, it's the fact they are are even implementing ideals and slowly indoctrinating students. Not surprising because that's what school has always been.

Lyrics:
Hey teacher leave them kids alone

We don't need no education
We don't need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey teacher leave them kids alone

All in all it's just another brick in the wall
All in all you're just another brick in the wall

We don't need no education
We don't need no thought control
No dark sarcasm in the classroom
Teachers leave them kids alone
Hey teacher leave us kids alone
All in all you're just another brick in the wall
All in all you're just another brick in the wall


Song sums up my thoughts.

People are becoming stupid, because people are allowing it. No one has the gonads to stand up anymore for what's right.

Its a lot more sinister than it appears on the surface, and without going into too much detail, let's just say they want to dictate how you should think, how you should feel and how you should react.

Freedom of thought?

Ever read Orwell's 1984?

Is this why theUS is sinking in the statistics about math smarts by country? I sure hope this new form of undereducating does come to Canada.

When I went to college 20 years ago, it was mostly about teaching us how to think, how to learn, as much as it was about the subject matter. How to look up stuff for ourselves.

This new social justice outrage isn't healthy. Trendy, but not healthy for the individual or society.

I think you have been trolled.
Reading comments such at this:


Did you ever notice how much the number 1 looks like an erect male member? 1 is truly the sexiest number that you ever knew.

tells me that much.

🙄 Just start teaching about money, interest rates, currencies, investments, budgeting, etc and it'll help teach about poverty and global thinking....that's all helpful math.

The problem is, can a peaceful revolution through reason and understanding take place? Honestly, the wall/tower needs to crumble in order to start over with the basics. The ten commandments and rebuild and keep society within those laws instead of mans laws. We are witnessing the result of man's laws as we speak. People chose this, so they will have to learn the hard way. And yes I know it is painful to watch.

But these days I'm working more towards emotionally detaching from this world, because otherwise beasty takes over.
Unless the world wakes up and turn their backs on the death machine, this cycle will never end. God have mercy on us all.


We are being indoctrinated by their ways while they claim they are not. Actions speak louder than words and people remain in denial.

some more from this evil


“Teaching Social Justice through Secondary Mathematics” is a six-week online course


oh snap


Participants in the online course are given sample ideas for lessons they could create, such as using math to teach students about “Unpaid Work Hours in the Home by Gender” and “Race and Imprisonment Rates in the United States.”


sounds like something created by the devil himself

Reason and understanding can take place if everyone included is of sound mind. The only laws that speak are those that speak for all.

Yeah we're being indoctrinated, i'm glad you noticed because if people don't stand up against it, they'll be forced to live it.

You are failing to see the underlying issues. Nobody is saying teaching your kids about equality is a bad thing. Why, how and for what reason is what you should be asking.
