A victory for parents as KSL news is reporting that Granite school district has pulled a couple of the inappropriate math problems we pointed out this past week. Click the link to see the news story where the newscaster ends by saying “students won’t be traumatized by [the inappropriate math problems], only by the math itself.”
We really need to move past telling people math is hard and people can’t do it. There are plenty of examples of people that succeeded when they applied themselves. Just ask Jaime Escalante of whom the movie Stand and Deliver was made.
Granite SD spokesperson Ben Horsley mentions pulling the problems on the serial killer, and the loan shark (one we didn’t post the other day in our math propaganda article). If you live in Granite and Jordan school districts, raise your voice and have them remove the other inappropriate math problems from the book.
If you want to see someone go through several of the book examples on video, check out the YouTube video below showing several other indoctrinating questions in the textbook. However, he didn’t know Granite and Jordan school districts were 2 separate districts so forgive him for that at the beginning. He also didn’t mention the very first problem in the book is an assignment on group-think.
I have no idea who this person is as this was done independent of this website.
