Virginia to revamp math curriculum, CANCEL advanced courses prior to last two years of high school to force racial equity

The Virginia Mathematics Pathways Initiative (VMPI)
Quote:The move will eliminate algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus course options below the 11th grade, limiting them to the last two years of high school. It would essentially achieve math equity by bringing all students to the lowest coursework level.

...VMPI's top goal is listed as being to “improve equity in mathematics learning opportunities.”

...The move follows a trend in moving away from advanced studies and merit-based learning opportunities, such as the city of New York's decision late last year to end testing-based admissions to elite public high schools.

...“when equity becomes a synonym for coerced mediocrity.”
-Bo Winegard, Professor fired for speaking on Genetics and Psychological differences

Public Schools are an 19th Century progressive concept.  We need to voucherize all students and create a free market school system.

This is my definition of equity, https://www.bankrate.com/glossary/e/equity/
Guess where they don’t teach that? Virginia schools. This is what they teach here in “higher learning”

Just the image alone in the above should tell you a lot.

Virginia seems to be leading the way. That’s on purpose.

Are they trying to say that black people are really stupid and so to spare their feelings the rest of us have to pretend that we are also really stupid?   Scratchinghead

They are basically saying "you can't add x+y" and that POC's are too stupid to understand how to do it.

They are also saying "We told you that if you integrated the schools, black people would be given access to better facilities and teachers and then they would do as well as everyone else, and we we're completely wrong. Affirmative Action has failed".

Wow. I thought they were just eliminating calc and trig, but it’s algebra, too. Now I know most people don’t use algebra and geometry much, but if you leave your framing square at home you can still use a tape measure and the Pythagorean theorem to find square. Maybe he was a racist, but kids will never know now will they?

Although it was long ago...I think algebra used to be introduced in around 5th grade? No algebra until 11th grade is just completely fucking nuts.
