According to a Teach for America website, culturally responsive teaching in math is important because “math has traditionally been seen as the domain of old, White men.”
As reported earlier this week, Teach for America groups across the country are committing themselves to “culturally responsive teaching,” a radical pedagogy used by communist Bill Ayers and other blatant anti-American indoctrinators.
The site, Culturally Responsive Teaching, Teach for America, says that because math is seen as a domain for old, white men, many students cannot identify with it. Therefore, educators should find ways to relate math to the lives of their students.
Judging from the math curriculum recommended, this TFA group, like all other social justice educators, wants minorities to believe that what relates most to their lives in America is racism and oppression.
For example, the site recommends “Critically Conscious Mathematics” and “Radical Math.”

Next week, the organization, Creating Balance in an Unjust World, will hold it’s annual conference on “math education and social justice”.
Not wanting to waste a single minute of precious indoctrination time in the school day, liberal educators have incorporated brainwashing into every course subject, including math.
The Creating Balance in an Unjust World conference is sponsored by Radical Math, an organization founded by Jonathan Osler, a math and community organizing teacher at a Coalition of Essential Schools (CES) high school in Brooklyn, NY. Read about CES schools and President Obama here and here.
The Creating Balance conference and Radical Math provide training and resources for teachers to learn how to teach mathematics for social justice. For example, participating trainers coach elementary school teachers to not use traditional math lessons when teaching children to calculate the cost of food. Rather, they recommend making it clear to students that in a truly just society, food would be as free as the air we breathe.
Radical Math provides over 700 lesson plans and other resources for teachers on its website. A major portion of the curriculum focuses on various ways the poor are discriminated against and oppressed by banks, corporations, the rich, and the government. More anti-capitalism propaganda and ‘us against them’ class warfare.
