A New Way To Teach Math

Unveiled earlier this month, the course aims to teach math instructors how to craft lesson-plans that incorporate social justice in order to raise their students’ awareness

“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.”

According to the website, the course can even help students to learn math, because while many aspects of middle- and high-school math “can seem abstract to students,” the developers claim that “setting the mathematics within a specially-developed social justice framework can help students realize the power and meaning of both the data and social justice concerns.”

You may not agree, but I think this is part of the "destroy the USA" program. The only way to deal with inequity, poverty, and privilege is to lower our standard of living. And that means the end of US exceptionalism.

If we were doing this as Christians, I might be happy. But we're not; we're doing it as vassals of the oligarchs, bankgangsters, corporate CEOs, and their collaborators in the one percent. And that is decidedly un-Christian.
