If you believe that one plus one equals two – you might be a racist.
The Seattle School District announced plans to infuse math class with ethnic studies questions.
They are teaching the kids that math was appropriated by western culture and used in systems of power and oppression.
The school district says it’s all part of a movement to re-humanize math. The new lessons ask questions like “How important is it to be right?” and “Who gets to say if an answer is right?”
The district’s framework includes themes on resistance and liberation. They also want to illustrate how math and science have been used to oppress and marginalize people and communities of color.
What that has to do with long form division or teaching a kid how to balance a checkbook is beyond me.
Education Week says Woke Math grew out of a campaign led by the NAACP as a way to introduce something called ethno-mathematics.
All that to say – good luck finding a cashier down at the Walmart who can make change.
