Yet at the same time, Mayor Bill de Blasios education masterplan foresees offering algebra, a gateway to higher-level math courses, to all eighth-graders by 2022.

It wants Room 101 back. Nope the idea of 2+2 equaling 4 is cultural and because of western imperialism/colonization, we think of it as the only way of knowing, wrote Marshall. Never mind that the Arabic numeral system we use is not, you know, Western. Marshall goes by the pronouns she/her and describes herself on Twitter as a teacher, scholar, social justice change agent,...

    In the end, the Party would announce that two and two made five, and you would have to believe it. It was inevitable that they should make that claim sooner or later: the logic of their position demanded it. Not merely the validity of experience, but the very existence of external reality, was tacitly denied by their philosophy. George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four Its no secret that leftist educators have utterly ruined the fields of the humanities with their Marxist wokeness, postmodern deconstructionism, and openly anti-Western bias.

The UC started using the SAT in the 1960s to find talented students from modest backgrounds.
