“black and Latino teaching candidates have higher failure rates when it comes to math skills, which researchers associate with socioeconomics and systemic discrimination in the school system”
It’s bad enough that they say that black and hispanic kids can’t do math because of racism and discrimination – no its because they are stupid. But now, they are saying the same thing about the black and hispanic teachers. Because the leftists cannot confront racial reality of IQ and ability differences between black and white students, they have to concoct discrimination fantasies based on racism.
Things really fall apart when blacks and hispanics try to grasp abstract thinking required in algebra. Until that point simple rote memorization of addition and multiplication tables was enough to get by. But algebra stops them dead in their tracks. Of course teachers have no requirement to be able to do 9th grade algebra unless they are math teachers. By the time you get to calculus the classes are 100 % white students. The white childrens larger brain size and ability to think abstractly and apply abstract methods outdistances their ape like brethren like a kenyan sprinter would against kids in the special olympics.
But that reality CANNOT be discussed. We thought it was horrible when it came to the students, but now the same fake excuses are being applied to teachers who are black and hispanic.
Lecce said he doesn’t fault teachers, instead slamming the previous Liberal government and its switch to a discovery math curriculum.
“There’s a reason why our young kids today cannot do basic math,” Lecce said.
He said teachers will also receive more professional development to improve their math teaching skills, something Reid said is important.
But based on research Reid has seen out of the United States, she’s not convinced teacher math tests will solve the lower student test scores, saying there doesn’t seem to be a connection between teachers passing this type of test and student achievement.
She also points to U.S. research that finds black and Latino teaching candidates have higher failure rates when it comes to math skills, which researchers associate with socioeconomics and systemic discrimination in the school system.
