Woke Progressives Target Math Class As Racist For Expecting “Right Answer” Or “Showing Your Work”

The latest target of woke progressive lunacy is facts. Literally, facts.

Mathematics facts, to be exact.

Because now, according to woke progressives, finding the right answer and showing your work is actually racist and white supremacist.

The Oregon Department of Education newsletter promoted a teachers training program called “A Pathway to math Equity Micro-Course,” which is aimed at “dismantling racism in mathematics” through “ethnomathematics.”

Oh, you didn’t know that math is racist? You thought there were just objective facts that follow a set of mathematical laws and rules that don’t care about your feelings or the color of your skin? Just picture me rolling my eyes.

Well, the Oregon Department of Education has put together a toolkit to show teachers how to find the ways that “white supremacy culture” has “infiltrat[ed] math classrooms.”

Apparently, requiring students to “show their work” is racist. They say it is white supremacy to expect a student to write out the mathematical process and show the steps they took to arrive at the answer. Who cares if the teacher needs to see the student’s work in order to  ascertain whether the student understands the underlying mathematics principles or grasps the required processes. It doesn’t matter that showing your work enables teachers and students to identify trouble spots in lengthy or difficult math problems, especially in the event that the student arrives at the incorrect answer.

And speaking of arriving at the incorrect answer, that whole concept is also racist and white supremacist.
