Social Justice Math

Well, you can’t make this stuff up. After centuries racist mathematics, we’re finally waking up. And just in time, I guess.

from the College Fix:

Educators work to combat racism, whiteness in math

“Math equity” doesn’t mean 1 + 1 = 2.

The term refers to the growing insistence among educators that teaching math in the classroom comes with some inherently biased methodology that must be addressed.

Proponents of “math equity” also stress the importance of social justice issues such as race, diversity and gender in math education — a trend that’s catching on.

More professors and educators are tweeting under the hashtag #MathEquity to share strategies on the topic, and webinars and other pedagogical sessions on it abound. read more

Kamala Harris Spins a Yarn

Despite many leftist outlets attempting to spin Kamala Harris’s tale of busing practically “saving her life,” or some such nonsense, what she said on the debate stage, could be classified as a gross exaggeration, if not an outright lie. Either way, she owes Uncle Joe and the American people an apology. Neither he nor we will get one. That’s just not how Kamala rolls.

Here are the facts.

Fact Check: Kamala Harris Exaggerates Her History on Busing

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) enjoyed a standout moment in the second night of the 2020 Democratic presidential debate on Thursday when she attacked former Vice President Joe Biden on the issue of federal mandated busing to racially integrate schools. Harris repeated a powerful talking point about why the issue is personal for her, with the memorable tagline: “That little girl was me.” read more

Will Government Ever Extricate Itself from Higher Education?

No and why it want to. Neither Democrats nor Republicans have ever proposed such a thing, and most never will. But some on the right are at least proposing some changes.Image result for college loan bailouts

6 Serious Counterproposals To Democrats’ Insane Higher Ed Bailouts

The student loan debt bubble will soon burst, and the proper solution is not to throw $1.6 trillion of taxpayers’ money at a government-created problem.

Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, both of whom are running for president, each have a higher ed plan: Warren’s would pay off $50,000 of student debt for those earning less than $100,000, and Bernie’s would pay off practically all of America’s $1.6 trillion in student debt and make state college “free.” He’d attempt to pay for it by taxing stock and bond trades. read more

A Visit to the Che Café

Be Cool and Ignorant just like Che-Z

Last week Will Witt for Prager University took a mike and camera to the University of California at San Diego, where he found himself at the Che Café.

Yes, the Che Café is a woke coffee shop, vegan restaurant and hang-out for the cool, hip and proletariat. Trump supporters are NOT welcome. Shocking!

And it’s full of students who are completely clueless about the deeds and beliefs of the Café’s namesake, one Che Guevara. Not a single student Will interviewed had any idea of what an unrepentant monster Che was.

So, before the video, let me just highlight some of Che Guevara’s brightest moments.

To see supposedly enlightened college students, especially black college students, walking around with Che’s face emblazoned on a t-shirt, is the height of stupidity. read more

Newsflash: Now Dodgeball is a Form of Oppression.

from Human Events:

Dodgeball is ‘an Unethical Tool of Oppression’, Say Academics

This week, three education theorists will present the premise that dodgeball is “miseducative” and teaches athletic privilege to the Canadian Society for the Study of Education at the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences in Vancouver, Canada.

The left’s most recent addition to the list of things they find oppressive is: dodgeball.

Yes, the game you played in gym class when you were twelve.

The National Post released an article earlier today by Joseph Brean explaining how “dodgeball isn’t just an unethical tool, it’s a form of oppression.” read more

NYC Spending $23 Million to Check Teachers’ Whiteness

New York City, like most cities run by leftists, is heavily and desperately in debt. They currently have approximately $58.5 billion in assets available to pay bills totaling $244 billion. In other words, that’s over $64,000 per NYC taxpayer. Yet this never seems to matter when implementing another idiotic leftist feel-good program.

I mean – what’s another $23 million, flushed down the proverbial toilet, to advance the social justice, liberal agenda.

from the New York Post:

Teachers allegedly told to favor black students in ‘racial equity’ training

In controversial “implicit bias” training, New York City’s public-school educators have been told to focus on black children over white ones — and one Jewish superintendent who described her family’s Holocaust tragedies was scolded and humiliated, according to firsthand accounts.

A consultant hired by the city Department of Education told administrators at a workshop that “racial equity” means favoring black children regardless of their socio-economic status, sources said. read more

Mayfield Drops the Hammer on Political Correctness

NFL star quarterback Baker Mayfield ripped into the administration at an Ohio high school for dropping valedictorian and salutatorian honors out of sensitivity to students who don’t earn the awards and a concern for the overall “mental health” of students.

“This is so dumb,” said the Cleveland Browns quarterback in a Saturday tweet captioning the news. “You’re telling me competition doesn’t bring out the best in people? If you want something bad enough, work for it.” read more

Leftist University Rids Itself of the Scourge of Chick-fil-A

Chick-fil-A is now the third largest chain restaurant in the nation, behind only McDonald’s at number one and Starbucks in second. It successfully unseated Subway recently, bumping the sub-shop chain to number four. It has seen a meteoric rise as of late. In 2017, Chick-fil-A was ranked a mere 7th, behind Taco Bell, Burger King and Wendy’s . But the quality of its product and superior staff has pole-vaulted it passed the aforementioned giants.

And its done all this despite constant attacks by the loony left, claiming that the restaurant chain supports “anti-LGBT” causes. These attacks are particularly prevalent on … you guessed it … college campuses.

Special Rights for Special Students

On their website, GLAAD, the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation, states clearly that, ” Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people want equal rights, not special rights.”

Oh really. Tell that to the majority of young women who live at the Scottish Rite Dormitory at the University of Texas-Austin Campus.

Heather Mac Donald Speaks out Against The Delusion of Diversity

There is no more delusional a place than the modern day college campus, and no more delusional group than the students who attend. We can find examples of this every day at sites like the College Fix and Campus Reform. Woke students, privileged enough to attend elite Universities, are triggered in to melt down and often violence at the mere mention of anything they don’t agree with or can’t fully embrace.

Peter Robinson of Fox Nation interviews Heather Mac Donald regarding her new book, The Delusion of Diversity, her experiences with college student ne’er-do-wells, and the faculty and staff who pander to their immaturity.
