"Data science by nature brings equity into the classroom”

Equity. And there it is folks, woke in all its glory. It didn’t take the socialists very long to inject their woke into mathematics. These clowns will stop at nothing to destroy foundations of everything. Here’s another gem:

"The framework's focus on fundamental concepts, open-ended tasks, justice, student inquiry, reasoning and justification aligns with effective mathematics teaching practices.”

That part in there about “justice” made me laugh. Tell me: What does “justice” have to do with math? These clowns are finding ways to submit their socialist and woke BS agenda into everything.

The California State Board of Education is pushing this crap out to every school in the state, sans private schools. It’s simply an indoctrination process that has become prevalent everywhere and it’s only going to get worse.

Depending on socio-economic backgrounds and natural aptitude, math can be a very challenging subject for some students.

Algebra is neither woke or is just a bunch of numbers, letters, and equations that most people don't need to get by in everyday life. It is best reserved for those whose college majors require a background in linear algebra.

For others, equations can easily be solved via artificial intelligence if needed.

Derek Long I’m troubled by your racist innuendo that people of some socioeconomic backgrounds are neither capable of nor require education in fundamental mathematics. How about this , train teachers to teach actual math and pay them competitively and differently than social studies and drama teachers etc.. The fact is someone with advanced enough math to educate kids is getting $300k+ offers from far less stressful positions. Trying to solve all this by saying math isn’t within the reach of some kid while doing nothing about hiring people without math degrees to teach while giving them zero training is idiotic.
