THE CA CONTAGION SPREADS: Teachers, Activists Push School Districts To Drop Calculus In The Name Of Equity

“Having calculus as the gatekeeper for competitive college admissions doesn’t make sense because of all of the inequities … and because it is taking one form of math and giving it a special place,” Bill Tucker, senior advisor of the Pathways Program at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, told the outlet. “We want to have that equal opportunity… but we don’t want to make it so every student has to go to that door.”

#JUSTWALKAWAY THREATENS TO SNOWBALL:  Where the Kids Went: Nonpublic Schooling and Demographic Change during the Pandemic Exodus from Public Schools


  • Over the first two school years under the pandemic, K–12 enrollment in public schools fell by more than 1.2 million students, with prominent losses among students in early elementary grades and kindergarten.
  • In the 2021–22 school year, private school enrollment was 4 percent higher while homeschool enrollment was 30 percent higher.
  • The growth in private school enrollment was particularly large in kindergarten and early elementary grades.
  • DC and the 21 states that had available data showed increased homeschool enrollment during the pandemic. The smallest increase occurred in North Carolina, where homeschool enrollment grew by 8 percent. Other states saw particularly large increases, including Florida (43 percent), New York (65 percent), and Pennsylvania (53 percent).
  • During the pandemic, the school-age population in the US fell by more than 250,000; the location of the school-age population shifts and the pattern of states gaining and losing children matched the changes in the total population.
  • More than a third of the loss in public school enrollment cannot be explained by corresponding gains in private school and homeschool enrollment and by demographic change. For example, between the 2019–20 and the 2021–22 school years, K–12 enrollment in California’s public schools fell by roughly 271,000. Though some of this loss can be attributed to the corresponding decline in the state’s school-age population and growth in private and homeschool enrollment, sources fail to explain more than half (about 150,000 students) the state’s public school enrollment losses.

I’M PRETTY SURE YOU CAN GUESS WHO THE OPPRESSED ARE:  California school district presentation divides students into categories of ‘privilege’ or ‘oppression’

“The framework was used to stimulate discussion among a group of student leaders interested in developing a campus climate that fosters a sense of belonging for all students considering the many different experiences and perspectives students hold,” he told Fox News Digital.

Kind of a strange way to foster a sense of belonging.

GOOD  Florida rejects AP African American course that contained elements of CRT, ‘Black Queer Studies’

A section of the course, titled “African American Studies: Movements and Methods,” includes a lesson on “Black Queer Studies” that teaches students about “the concept of the queer of color critique, grounded in Black feminism and intersectionality, as a Black studies lens that shifts sexuality studies toward racial analysis,” according to the syllabus.

ACADEMIA’S DIRTY LITTLE SECRET Why Academics Are Writing Junk That Nobody Reads

Some of the titles in the most recent issues of the Journal of the American Academy of Religion—which proclaims itself as “the top academic journal in the field of religious studies”—serve as evidence:

  • “Dona Benta’s Rosary: Managing Ambiguity in a Brazilian Women’s Prayer Group”
  • “Death and Demonization of a Bodhisattva: Guanyin’s Reformulation within Chinese Religion”
  • “Brides and Blemishes: Queering Women’s Disability in Rabbinic Marriage Law”

Thus, increased specialization has led to increased alienation between not only professors and the general public, but also between the professors themselves.

All of this is very unfortunate. Ideally, the great academic minds of a society should be put to work for the sake of building up that society and addressing its problems. Instead, most Western academics today are using their intellectual capital to answer questions that nobody’s asking on pages that nobody’s reading.

AS THEY SHOULD. Responsible donors hold universities accountable for how their gifts are used. Benefactor’s family demands refund after U. Richmond removes name from law school
