UIC Prof Rochelle Guitierrez complains that the phrase “Pythagorean Theorem” and the cultural emphasis on math prejudices mathematics against non-white students.
I guess she thinks these students aren’t human! Mathematical reasoning is a unique function of the human mind. But, it figures, since the anti-reason social justice ideology sees all humans as fractured into physical and social groups, warring with each other, rather than united by a common humanity.
Wow, and she teaches math ed at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Of course, former Weatherman bomber Bill Ayres was a lauded professor of education there.
Follow the ideas and you will understand the culture.
