The practice test.
It’s not THAT hard for someone supposed to be college educated.
Yabbut, numbers be racist.
My first supervisor out of college (we’re both EEs) said “Keep the mystery of science alive - support public education.”
Definitely applicable here.
The whiny teachers are correct in that a SJW doesn’t need to learn math, particularly when redistributing wealth.
If they’re white and male, take from them and give to someone that doesn’t look like them. Easy peasy.
This is laughable, there is no chance it will lead to dismissals. It will have a disparate impact on minority teachers and will be thrown out for that reason. It is a total waste of resources and effort.
Then you have the problem of replacing the dismissed teachers. Who is going to want to work in schools like those in the Chicago? Martial arts would be a prerequisite for teaching there rather than math.
There are only a handful of college “educated” graduates who could even get a passable score. A test should concentrate on simple arithmetic not one which is at ACT/SAT levels.
The authors of this test apparently are in La-La Land and it is correct that it has no bearing on subjects other than math or science.
My late wife was an Art teacher and would not have a chance with this test. However, there wasn’t a better art teacher on the planet. Her young Black students loved her and produced some terrific art. She was White as snow and her students would complain about “that ole White teacher” to her.
I quit school, ended up getting my GED when 19 and even when in school, I chose shop classes and they wouldn’t let me take advanced math like algebra because of that, yet I could still pass this test.
No I do have a natural inclination for math but I would think a math teacher would too. Otherwise, why bother teaching math if you don’t like it and aren’t good at it?
Back in my day, I’m pretty sure all the math teachers went to college and actually studied math there.
It looks a lot like the kind of math I was doing as a high school freshman. Maybe ever junior high. And I went to PUBLIC school.
Amazingly light sand on that beach.
