Leave education to the sort of statist apparatchiks who infest all things governmental, and nothing taught in schools will be undistorted by corrosive left-wing ideology — not even math. Big Government quotes from The Guide for Integrating Issues of Social and Economic Justice into Mathematics Curriculum, by Jonathan Osler:
[T]he systemic and structural oppression of low income and people of color in the United States is worsening. The number of people in prison continues to grow, as do unemployment rates. Billions of dollars that were once available for social programs and education have been diverted to pay for war. …
These problems and many others are being addressed by community organizations and activists, and often find their way into assignments in Social Studies and English classes. However, in math classes around the country, perhaps the best places to study many of these issues, we continue to use curricula and models that lack any real-world, let alone socially relevant, contexts. A great opportunity to educate our young people about understanding and addressing these myriad issues continues to be squandered.
The time students spend having their skulls stuffed with leftist manure is time they are not learning math. But that’s okay, because from the point of view of a moonbat, math is bad anyway:
Math was behind the development of nuclear weapons. It is used to maintain an economic divide between a handful of wealthy, White people and the billions of poor people of color around the world. It is used as a rationale for depriving people of access to cheap, life-saving drugs. So my question is: what good has the progress of mathematics as an intellectual discipline done for people?
That it’s possible for grown adults to ask a question like that tells you all you need to know about the state of education in this country.
Being American isn’t passed down in our DNA. If we don’t take education back from the moonbats, our civilization will cease to exist. To get an idea of what that will look like, check out the latest news from Britain, where the truly British are a dying breed because moonbattery has prevailed.
