What idiocy!!

I read in the San Francisco paper about a school in Manhattan using a lesson on slavery and math.

Seems like I wrote about that same lesson months ago. Can't remember where it happened but I'll swear it was somewhere around here.

**updated** I was right!! I wrote about this a year ago here. It was stupid then and it is stupid now.

It is stupid! don't know how these people become teachers or even high school graduates. Oh yeah, probably E4E or Teach For America graduates.

I just read the story behind this. The students were told to write math problems based on what they learned in social studies, where they were studying slavery. The problems came from the kids and event he parents did not mind them. I guess we were all jumping too soon.
