    New Social Justice Math Class Will Teach Your Kids About “Inequity, Poverty, and Privilege”

    There’s a good reason why some college departments are riddled with social justice ideologues, and others are not. It’s because these beliefs are completely illogical, so they can only thrive in subjects that are open to interpretation. So if you went to college and took a class for liberal arts, gender studies, or sociology, you’re far more likely to run into politically correct nonsense than if you took a class in say, astrophysics. It’s hard to insert emotionally charged drivel into a subject that is relatively cut and dry.

    Of course, that doesn’t mean that the social justice warriors in academia won’t try to infiltrate every class, no matter how silly it makes them look. For instance, two education organization known as Teach for America and EdX have partnered to create a six week math course titled “Teaching Social Justice through Secondary Mathematics.”

    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.”

    But the syllabus for this course takes the cake. Half of it doesn’t even sound like it has anything to do with math.

    Week 1:  Course Orientation & Survey of Social Justice Issues
    Introduction to course and survey of a selection of social justice issues.

    Week 2: Understanding Your Social Justice Topic
    Focus on researching and understanding the multiple facets of your chosen social justice issue.

    Week 3: Let the Math Tell the Story
    Identify the various data sets that exist around your social justice topic. Let the data inform the mathematics.

    Week 4: Constructing the Lesson
    Write the activity. This includes developing the student narrative and considering displays of data.

    Week 5: Refining and Testing the Idea
    Complete the activity. Gauge resultant versus intended takeaways. Gather feedback.

    Week 6: Using the Course In Class & Course Wrap-Up
    Use the activity you developed in your classroom or consider the implications of using one of these activities in a math classroom. This week also includes the course wrap-up.

    Believe it or not, the idea that social justice beliefs would find their way into the math world was predicted not too long ago. In 2015, an Australian comedian by the name of Neel Kolhatkar created this darkly humorous video on what classrooms would like, if political correctness was ever allowed to run amok.

    I want to say that political correctness will never get that bad, but now I’m not so sure.

      Talk to your kids, parents. You do remember what a ‘parent’ is, right?

        “Of course, that doesn’t mean that the social justice warriors in academia won’t try to infiltrate every class, no matter how silly it makes them look.”

        “SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIOR” is a euphemism for Communist Infiltrator. Period.

        To use “justice’ is to imply “equity”, “fairness”, and “righteousness”. There is nothing fair, equitable, or righteous about the Left: its methods or it’s goals.

        It’s time for Patriots to quit using the nomenclature the Left provides to describe their activities as it is just another attempt to hide their true identity.

        A socialist is just a communist that has yet tried to confiscate your guns or your gold. Gold being a measure of real wealth; and guns your basic human right of self defense.

        Can you say, “FREE TRADE” ??? It was neither free nor fair. Can you say, “FEDERAL RESERVE”??? It is neither Federal, nor has it any reserves; except your bank deposits. 🙁

        CR, I say let all of the GOOD AND SENSIBLE people get out of Cali first, then set off the San Andreas and let her rip.

      DISPOSSESSION WAS A CALAMITY FOR THE INDIANS

      BUT WE SHOULD CELEBRATE WHITE DISPOSSESSION AKA “DIVERSITY”????????

      IF ALL THE INDIANS HADNT HAVE DIED FROM SMALLPOX

      AMERICA WOULD LOOK JUST LIKE ANY OTHER SOUTH AMERICAN COUNTRY

      NEVER FORGET THAT

    3. Homeschool.

      Kids are with $30.00 per day. When their gravy train leaves, they will change.

      • durangokidd says:

        NO, they will not change. They will never change their goal only their method of delivery: thus today we have “political correctness” inundating the American Education System and the LSM with euphemisms.

        The money is not as important as pushing their ideology to indoctrinate the next generation of American children into believing their lies and accepting their propaganda as truth.

        It’s an assault upon everything American, because America embodies the great ideal of “self determination”, with a government of, by, and for the people. The Left (and the Right) want own, control, and exploit US.

        Engage !!! 🙂

        B from CA, I’m glad I was a kid back in the 60s and not today. I would’ve been fighting with every libturd and his momma over the PC garbage. No kids of mine would’ve ever been brainwashed with that crap.

    4. Overthecliff says:

      They have to teach something because they can’t teach math.

    5. GrandpaSpeaks says:

      But will they learn to divide 21 trillion by three hundred and twenty four million?

      Inner City Business Math

      Jamal bought a kilo of blow for $80K and cut it to 8% purity, after paying off da man, how much does he net?

    7. Traitor Hator says:

      We have anti monopoly laws to keep one group from buying up all the flour and charging us 100 dollars for a loaf of bread? Pure capitalism works for a little while. Then revolution ?

    8. Braveheart1776 says:

      That video is totally insane. Libturds are totally doomed to failure.

    9. TEST says:

      New socialist justice class exposes reality:

      I’m reminded of dear old departed Leonid Brezhnev. OK, yes, this is apocryphal, but still…

      The story goes Leonid Brezhnev had his ancient grandmother visit him at his office in Moscow when he was leader of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Brezhnev proudly showed her his many Zil limousines – all left running for whenever his whims demanded – the Italian marble floors in his private bathroom, the gold plated handles on his mahogany desk, all his dachas, his multiple fine silk suites in his closets, and much, much more.

      Finally, the end of the day came, and all the assistants, servants and aides went home. After everyone had left, the aged grandmother looked around very, very carefully, then sidled up as close as she possibly could to her grandson and whispered very, very quietly in his ear:

      “This is all very well, Leonid. But… WHAT IF THE COMMUNISTS COME???”

      Of course, today we would apply this same story to all the Hollywood Learjet leftists, Michelle-Marie Antoinette Obama and her monthly uber-vacations, the John Kerrys with their mega-yachts, the Nancy Pelosis who increase their net worth by tens of millions while in office, etc.

      Or, maybe, in real life, re. Irina Bokova, who as of Sept. 2016 was head of the UN’s UNESCO, and now is up to be the UN head in 2017. This “woman of the people” – but not apocryphal, has a number of luxury properties (among other things), including a Manhattan apartment worth over $3 million, and own properties in London and Paris, worth over $1 million each, according to Bulgarian watchdog Bivol. Funny how she obtained all this as a “servant of the people” on a public servant’s salary. Kinda reminds one of fellow commie rich-nik former UN Under-Secretary General Maurice Strong, who recently went to his reward – or lack thereof – despite a net worth of over $100 million.

    10. Traitor Hator says:

      I wish they would teach the kids How many things were ounce believed impossible. And How many times the experts were wrong. Falidimide. Leaches., The sun revolving around the earth. Multiculturalism works., Are things getting better. And fluoride will put dentists out of business. My doctor says leaches will suck the bad blood out of me. He went to college. Did you?

    11. Traitor Hator says:

      Just saw the Donna Brazil thing . If you minority members in the military that put your lives down to defend this country don’t admit that the majority of your fellow minority members are the domestic enemy then you are the domestic enemy and a traitor under the color of authority . So what do we do with you?

    12. Tsar Bomba says:

      This is brainwashing, plain and simple.

    13. sean says:

      1. Feminist gets pregnant 5 times by 5 different men and has five abortions. How much did the population grow?

      2. Low information inner city female voter gets pregnant 5 times to keep welfare payments coming. What is the economic drag on hardworking, taxpaying nuclear family?

      3. 2 homos marry. How many natural children are birthed?

    14. Jim in Va. says:

      Oh crap…now they know how little their allowance is worth!

    15. Reinhard Heydrich says:

      Now with the new social justice math Little Johnny can statistically calculate the odds of him being shot by and illegal alien or blow up by a Muslim refugee.

    16. Waiting says:

      Take your kids out of school now and teach them at home. You can do it, in fact you would probably do a better job. My first two oldest boys went to public school back before all this political correct shit . I still made trips to school when I felt someone was not doing their job. My third boy went to public school, private school, and taught at home. My fourth boy went to public school K- first nine weeks of second grade. Then I taught him at home, and he is a lot smarter than his peers. He got a GED and took some continuing education classes. The older three boys went on to earn a MS and 2 BS. Teachers should stick to teaching the subject they trained for and that’s all. I will teach my children my religious beliefs and I will teach my children their morals and their manners and how to think for themselves by reasoning. I now believe what my #2 son said, School is only for socialization of your children. He and his wife have taught both their boys at home all their lives; they have never attended public school. They have regular family Bible studies and also participate in organized religion studies. Please don’t allow your children to be brainwashed by the government.

    17. cranerigger says:

      You just can’t make this crazy liberal stuff up. How about teaching LOGIC, CAUSE & EFFECT, BIOLOGY, CHEMISTRY, PHYSICS, HISTORY, and TRADITIONAL MATH (not Common Core BS). I guess it’s easier to control people that can’t analyze things.

    18. Kevin2 says:

      At the very top are fascists that climbed the ladder using capitalism and then dragged it up behind them. Controlling the wealth they allocate an amount to pacify the masses to be distributed in equal fashion. This is where fascism uses communism. The productive body politic fights the symptom of communism largely unaware that the puppeteers are fascists. Likewise the social justice warriors, blind to the big picture do the bidding of those they despise.

    19. Brian says:

      Kill the Nerds!

    20. Defund the school.

    21. They need to teach that the tax payer is not responsible fo da baby, its da baby momma and baby daddy’s problem.
      Again they should teach that much poverty has been caused by people being too lazy to work and too stupid to learn.
      Finally it should be instilled into these kids that welfare is not a career choice.

    22. Beaumont says:

      Champagne communists, getting upset with welfare-cheese communists.

      Probably, 100% of the people responding did not get their education in a free market, and do not boycott subsidized business, altogether.

      You will not loyally support independents and coops, to the point at which they could trust you with their livelihoods, securely.

      You don’t like safespaces but should secure a space for yourself and likeminded individuals.
