Ah, thats just the deep-south for ya. They havent evolved yet to our current year of 2011. Nor have they evolved beyond the 1800's yet.

And their dark-age religious beliefs are even more frightening...

More psyops on the youth...very simple. There are 10 people, 6 enter the door and go inside, how many people are left outside?

I teach in Georgia. This is NOT representative of the curriculum in our state.

I believe this represents the poor judgement of ONE school's 3rd grade team. In the article it said they were trying to integrate social studies and math. Well, they did a poor job, and used poor judgement.

I'm mainly responding because of the rude comments about the south in this thread. Why is it okay to automatically assume every southerner is racist and stupid?

Come on, ATS. You should know better than to stereotype that way.

I wonder if this is some kind of pre-conditioning for the NWO and the collapse of America where people will work for slave wages?

I have noticed that this is not an isolated incident but one of many as of late.......

beyond poor taste ... it is just stupid!

disgusting this


i'm going to homestudy my kids.

we will begin with math, with the following question:

6 nazi's at Auswitch line up 10 jews, 7 get shot.
how many jews are still standing?

anyone offended?

well you SHOULDN'T be, according to some.
they're part of our history.

i think this is all in bad taste.
you just DON'T do this.

Well said.

I believe many are too focused on the cynicism of this topic to see the one point where the ignorance started in the first place.

an attempt to combine social studies with math (I could rant for days about how idiotic that idea sounds)

Quit your "WON'T SOMEONE THINK OF THE CHILDREN" silliness.

I found it funny.

I don't find it funny at all. They could have easily used the following story problem:

If 6 Navaho Indians scalped 20 settlers and 50 American soldiers captured 30 Sioux squaw, how many total .s of hair would there be which were violently taken?

There is an agenda. It's also called propaganda. They should have went a little farther back.

Another math problem read, "If Frederick got two beatings per day, how many beatings did he get in one week?"


news.yahoo.com...


The answer is 14...I think!


Way to put math into perspective!

edit on 8-1-2012 by jerryznv because: Had to read the problem first...


The question leaves a kid hanging if you ask me(no pun intended). Would it be a '5-day work week' or a regular 7-day calendar week?

See, now you've got the kids actually THINKING...

The problem now also becomes; did slaves work 5 days per week with 2 days off, or 6 with one day off or 7 with no days off?

Makes maths & social studies more interesting, no?

Of course we could just contine with the current system, and keep churning out uneducated kids, like what's been happening the last 50 plus years.

Disclaimer: Sister is a teacher in Atlanta. Actually she was promoted to principal now.

My perception is that there are special rules for special people. If you are an educator, or say a journalist, or a university professor, you can do something like that, and it is ok. Because there are special rules for you.

If however, you have no special status, working in the "private sector", making money, well, you had better not.

Education, together with the MSM has brought us to this point. Certain personality type gravitate to certain professions, and this is the result.

Are your kids getting a good education? Mine went to school, but they learned a lot at home and in developmental activities such as scouts.

My Daughter did an assignment for school where she was required to make a budget. To save money for other necessary things she decided not to have cable tv. Teacher said this was not acceptable, all the kids had to budget for cable tv.

They have a unique way of viewing the world. No offense sis...

Pretty weird math there!

I can see why they would think it was racist. But black slavery was not the only slavery in history, it's been happening around the world to many people. e.g Korean slavery.... I Even read that Moroccan pirates kidnapped people from ENGLAND and turned them into slaves. Not to mention all the sex slavery that's still happening in the world.

Anyway strange maths.

Here in Canada, if we were to combine our history with math, the question would go something like this:

The year is 1936, Father O'Neill is teaching christian values to 4 of his students: Smiling Eagle, Little Papoose, Running Mohawk, and Dances With Crickets.

Father removes the pants of Running Mohawk, Little Papoose, and Smiling Eagle. He teaches christian values to 2 of the children, while 1 watches. Dances With Crickets cries in the corner while Sister Mary whips the bottoms of his feet. Little Papoose was brought to the front of the line 3 times, while Smiling Eagle only bent over at the front of the line 2 times.

How many times did Running Mohawk get raped by Father O'Neill ?

If your not home schooling start if anyone can't see the indoctrination of "fred getting beat" so much for your educations.

Hey 2 Gay dudes walking into a bar and drank a beer each per day how many beers did they drink?

Hey 2 illegals ran over the border for a year how many illegals would be here after a year?

Not acceptable now is it?
