Canadian Education Minister: ‘Math is Racist’

According to critical race theorists in the Canadian education system – for centuries people of the world have been going about their daily lives totally oblivious to a hidden terror in their midst. For the social justice activist educators, this evil has a name: Math.

Administrators in Ontario have decided it’s time to protect ‘vulnerable minorities’ from the scourge of mathematics. Their new ‘progressive’ curriculum claims to address historical use of math to “normalize racism” and “marginalization of non-Eurocentric knowledge.”

That’s not all. According to newly revised cultural Marxist consensus, Math is also no longer objective either.

The Toronto Sun reports on how Ontario’s new Grade 9 curriculum preaches the ‘subjective’ nature of mathematics

ONTARIO – Changes to Ontario’s math curriculum announced last year by Education Minister Stephen Lecce will include a ‘subjective’ and ‘decolonial’ approach to mathematics, according to documents posted on the ministry’s website.

“Mathematics is often positioned as an objective and pure discipline,” reads a section of an online brief highlighting the ‘vision and goals’ of the updated curriculum.

“However, the content and the context in which it is taught, the mathematicians who are celebrated, and the importance that is placed upon mathematics by society are subjective.”

Math, it continues, has been “used to normalize racism and marginalization of non-Eurocentric mathematical knowledges,” and explains that taking a “decolonial” and “anti-racist approach” to teaching math will outline its “historical roots and social constructions” to students.

“The Ontario Grade 9 mathematics curriculum emphasizes the need to recognize and challenge systems of power and privilege, both inside and outside the classroom, in order to eliminate systemic barriers and to serve students belonging to groups that have been historically disadvantaged and underserved in mathematics education,” the brief continues.

Minister Lecce previously announced the new curriculum will bring early math streaming to an end, a practice he says created barriers for racialized and historically marginalized groups.

Teachers will be required to promote cross-curricular learning and human rights to create “anti-racist, anti-discriminatory learning environments.”
