The Oregon Department Of Education believes that asking students to “show their work” and expecting the correct mathematical answer is racist.
That’s right. They actually stated that “White supremacy manifests itself in the focus on finding the right answer” and that “The concept of mathematics being purely objective is unequivocally false, and teaching it is even much less so”, in their new document that will be given to teachers attending their new online training .
They go on to basically equate correct answers to math to toxic capitalism.
Their work book cites quotes from socialists and Marxists like Howard Zinn and Che Guevara.
They are systematically dumbing down children. In Math there is only 1 correct answer, not multiple answers. 2 + 2 = 4 not 4 and 7. This is the “everyone is a winner” philosophy and it’s damaging to humanity. Math is needed to solve real world problems. A car has 4 wheels. If Tim has 2 wheels how many more wheels does he need in order to drive his car? The answer is 2, not 2 or 1.
Assuming that minorities can not figure out the correct answer is actually true racism.
Stop the insanity !!!
