Dumb and Dumber (No. 2)
Watching the Education Apocalypse in Slow Motion
2 + 2 = RACISM
Jefferson County Public Schools in Louisville, Kentucky will host a year-long, professional training program on anti-racist mathematics.
The program’s goal is to “eliminate curricular violence and innovate mathematics education” through “anti-bias, anti-racist, and racially equitable practices.”
Educators will engage in monthly sessions with Lateefah Id-Deen, assistant professor of mathematics education at Kennesaw State University, which focus on topics like white supremacy in mathematics, racial trauma in mathematics, and creating anti-racist lesson plans.
Ok, ok. Yes, I’ve spent a lot of time denouncing and mocking Critical Race Theory. Let’s hit the pause button for a moment and take a few minutes to think about what it really is. So, let’s examine . . . “How Adherents See ‘Critical Race Theory’.” And let’s take . . . “A Deeper Look at Critical Race Theory: The neo-Marxist movement rejects equal opportunity, merit and objectivity.” William Galston is a man of the moderate Left, but he does an excellent job of explaining what Critical Race Theory is and why it’s an intellectual and moral abomination.
READ MY LIPS: Critical Race Theory is going to happen in your kids’ schools whether you ban it legislatively or not or vote it out at the local school board meeting. CRT is built into the federal and state departments of education, into 100% of America’s ed schools (i.e., the teacher training institutions), into the various state and local boards of education, and into scores of community education organizations. It will be taught, and you can’t do anything about it except take your kids out of all schools government, charter, or private that teach it. “REVEALED: Critical race theory group promoted by Dept of Ed has links to top Biden officials.”
OF COURSE THEY DID! Are you people not listening to me? “Missouri Teachers Plotted With CRT Advocate to Hide Radical Teaching From Parents.”
JUST DO IT!!!! The homeschool Revolution is here, and it is now:
The percentage of children being homeschooled in the U.S. has nearly doubled since the start of the COVID-19, according to a U.S. Census Bureau report.
The number of students increased from 5.6% in March 2020, to 11% in Sept. 2020, according to the most recent bureau report on the issue, released in March.
Prior to the pandemic, roughly 3.3% of U.S. households homeschooled children.
Black households saw the largest increase. Their homeschooling rate rose from 3.3% in the spring of 2020 to 16.1% in the fall according to the report.

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL. Seriously, how much longer will you stand for this? Time to take your kids and walk away: “Fauci Now Wants to Mask Your 3-Year-Old in School, Calls It 'Reasonable Thing to Do'.”
ANOTHER REASON TO JOIN “THE WALK AWAY MOVEMENT” BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE: “Rumblings: Teachers union head, Fed chair hint that schools might not reopen on schedule.”
Only 45 percent of would-be elementary teachers pass state licensing tests on the first try in states with strong testing systems concludes a new report by the National Council on Teacher Quality. Twenty-two percent of those who fail — 30 percent of test takers of color — never try again, reports Driven by Data: Using Licensure Tests to Build a Strong, Diverse Teacher Workforce.
Exam takers have the hardest time with tests of content knowledge, such as English language arts, mathematics, science and social studies.
I HEREBY DECLARE MY AVAILABILITY TO ALL SCHOOL DISTRICTS IN AMERICA TO EVALUATE THEIR CRITICAL RACE THEORY HISTORY CURRICULA. I will give you a better price than said professor: “Missouri School District Shells Out $15,000 On CRT Professor To Conduct History Curriculum Audit.”
THE NEOCON GRIFT CONTINUES. Almost every bad education idea that has come from so-called “conservatives” in the last 25 years has come from The Thomas B. Fordham Institute, which is a neoconservative outfit that shills for the Left and wants Washington, DC, to dictate education from the top down. These are the fools that gave America “Common Core.” “Don’t Be Fooled By ‘Conservative’ Groups Pushing A Leftist Takeover Of Civics Education.”

HIGHER ED EDITION
PHYSICIAN, HEAL THYSELF. If you read nothing else on today’s blog, read this essay. This is no longer amusing in the way that crazy can be sometimes funny. Academic woke PC is insane and dangerous. It could hurt your life or the lives of those you love. It is time for decent and sane people to stand up, and “Just Say No!” “Med Schools Are Now Denying Biological Sex.”
This is NOT education, Herr Doktor “Professor.” This is indoctrination by shaming and guilting. “'You may have oppressed somebody:' Prof to White student who said he left his house that day.”
THIS IS PERFECT! Upper-middle- and upper-class, white liberal parents are being asked by a left-wing community organization in the Dallas suburbs to pledge publicly that they will not send their children to an Ivy League university or to a top-50 college in order to make room from minority students. Just Do It! I dare you. Put your money where your mouth is. You must live up to the moral philosophy of sacrifice that you have been spouting for your entire lives and forcing on others. Take the pledge today:
Notice the threat here at the end. Nice touch. For more, see here: “Dear Rich White Parents: Keep Your Kids Out Of Ivy League Schools To Make Room For POC, OR ELSE!”
HIGHER ED SUICIDE WATCH: American colleges and universities are being destroyed by bureaucratization and what I call the “cult of mediocrity” just as much as by ideological indoctrination. As scores of colleges and universities start going out of business in the next few years, the time has come to start buying old campuses and creating new colleges. “Higher Ed Faces Existential Threat: Numbers And Salaries Are Down For Tenure-Track/Tenured Faculty, Way Up For Administrators; University Long-Term Debt Is Up 71%.”
