    California Weighs ‘Equitable Math’: Goal of Getting Correct Answer Racist

    “White supremacy culture infiltrates math classrooms in everyday teacher actions,” the document states. “Coupled with the beliefs that underlie these actions, they perpetuate educational harm on Black, Latinx, and multilingual students, denying them full access to the world of mathematics.”

    [Isa 5:20 ESV] 20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

    I agree. We can hope it will happen. It appears the ones with the lowest common denominator are calling the shots!
