Mathematical Equity

, , ,

Fox News:

The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) recently encouraged teachers to register for training that encourages “ethnomathematics” and argues, among other things, that White supremacy manifests itself in the focus on finding the right answer.

An ODE newsletter sent last week advertises a Feb. 21 “Pathway to Math Equity Micro-Course,” which is designed for middle school teachers to make use of a toolkit for “dismantling racism in mathematics.” The event website identifies the event as a partnership between California’s San Mateo County Office of Education, The Education Trust-West and others.

Part of the toolkit includes a list of ways “white supremacy culture” allegedly “infiltrates math classrooms.” Those include “the focus is on getting the ‘right’ answer,” students being “required to ‘show their work,'” and other alleged manifestations.

“The concept of mathematics being purely objective is unequivocally false, and teaching it is even much less so,” the document for the “Equitable Math” toolkit reads. “Upholding the idea that there are always right and wrong answers perpetuate objectivity as well as fear of open conflict.”

The ODE, led by Colt Gill, confirmed the letter to Fox News. ODE Communications Director Marc Siegel also defended the “Equitable Math” educational program, saying it “helps educators learn key tools for engagement, develop strategies to improve equitable outcomes for Black, Latinx, and multilingual students, and join communities of practice.”


Presumably, kiddies will get to learn “one, two, many” as the new ethnomath.

So imagine if we had used Ethnomathematics to send men to the moon. Where would they have ended up???

Is this the method that the swing states used to count the votes?


to fuel your aircraft: a graduate of the woke or the white teaching concept?


I can’t wait to see all the bridges, airplanes, and spaceships built by kids taught that getting the correct answer in math is irrelevant.

The Usual Suspect

You don’t care or want the correct answer? Let’s talk about the number on your paycheck?

The Russians and Chinese have actual schools and at all levels. The inevitable collapse of American culture, economy, and military will leave them in possession of the World.

And that will be God’s justice. They earned possession of the World.
