CA: Regime backtracks on “woke” math curriculum overhaul after stern opposition

Source: Fox News

“The California Board of Education is set to push back against implementing an overhaul of its mathematics curriculum after opponents argued the plan needlessly inserts politics and social justice initiatives into lessons. ‘California is on the verge of politicizing K-12 math in a potentially disastrous way. This postponement means the State Board of Education has heard the message loud and clear. STEM leaders don’t want California students left behind by introducing politics into the math curriculum,’ said in a statement Dr. Williamson M. Evers, a senior fellow of the Independent Institute.” [editor’s note: For those unaware of the history, Dr. Evers was a prominent Libertarian Party activist back in the 1970s and early ’80s; we clashed on internal issues on several occasions – SAT] (07/13/21)
