Ideology and education go hand in hand. Otherwise education is nothing more than a subordinate brainwashing institution to pump out worker drones.

The purpose of public education is to disseminate known, factual information as it exists in the whole of mankind's experience to the youth, in order to better allow them to take full advantage of their own inherent talents and better understand the world around them. It is not to indoctrinate children to hold any particular system of beliefs or moral values. Those things are taught at home, by the parents. Public education is not there to instill or deny religious values and beliefs; those things are taught in churches or by parents.
The binary thinking that all education can only be either all inclusive of all moral, religious, and social belief systems or it cannot is the basis of brainwashing. Few things in this world are subject to such a binary interpretation... only mankind has the inherent laziness to refuse to see shades of grey because it is too hard to do so.
Racism is a construct to keep the little people busy and divided.
England just drew a bunch of lines on a map, pinned ethnic groups against each other and left many, many times throughout history. I guess when people start to dig up the past and see what happened they get mad?

Have you looked into who is pushing this racist math stuff before or do you think it's some sort of global awakening of the 'left' to just start making up random useless false math?
He was pointing out how those in power can use education for exactly what is happening in the US.
The internet really has changed the world more than you know. I think that's one of the problems older generations aren't able to grasp. They cling onto this idea that schools and educational institutions need to be like they were when they were kids, but don't understand that if a kid wants to figure out a math problem they can just whip out a cell phone or watch a Youtube video.
The main issue with this thread isn't the direction of where education is going, or has potential to go, it's how it's been high jacked by critical race theory.

Asians who excel at education and life are "white supremacists" and using "white supremacist culture" to get ahead is disparaging of black and brown culture.
Why is that? Why do we need to take away traits that make people of any color or creed successful in order to combat so-called "white supremacy" and what do you think the elite who push this stand to gain by indoctrinating us all to this line of thinking - success equals white supremacy?
