Bill Gates’ Role in Pushing Anti-Racist Math

    Alex Nester of the Washington Free Beacon reports on a problematic project tied to a tech billionaire's charitable foundation.

  • A radical new push to purge math curricula of allegedly racist practices like showing your work and finding the correct answer is bankrolled by one of the nation's most prominent nonprofits: the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
  • The Gates Foundation is the only donor mentioned on the homepage of A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction, a group of 25 education organizations whose curriculum states that asking students to show their work and find the right answer is an inherently racist practice.
  • Over the past decade, the Gates Foundation has given upward of $140 million to some of the groups behind Pathway, whose antiracist resources are the basis for a new teacher training course offered by the Oregon Department of Education.
  • The Education Trust, a California-based group that promoted the September release of Pathway's antiracist "toolkit," has received $86 million from the Gates Foundation, including a $3.6 million grant awarded in June.
  • Teach Plus, another group dedicated to creating an antiracist culture in K-12 schools, has received more than $27 million from the Gates Foundation. The group's board members include former Democratic congressman George Miller and Obama-era secretary of education John King Jr. — who is also the president of The Education Trust.
  • WestEd, a nonprofit committed to dismantling "systemic barriers" in schools, has received more than $35 million from the Gates Foundation since 2009. UnboundEd, an organization dedicated to helping teachers "disrupt systemic racism" in the classroom, has received nearly $14 million in grants from the Gates Foundation since 2015.
  • The Gates Foundation has given smaller sums to other groups behind the Pathway, the latest attempt to bring critical race theory — the idea that American political and economic institutions are inherently racist — into schools.
  • Unique about Pathway is its focus on mathematics.

Considering that Joe Biden is considered by so many to be the Imposter President: Is he actually knowledgeable enough, wise enough, patriotic enough to be this Constitutional Republic's president at this difficult point in these tumultuous times?
  Yes, Mr. Biden is thoughtful and kind, and just so different from the "Orange Man".
  No, this representation of "president" is either too corrupt, too stupid, or both to be a real president.
  I just want the fun guy, who knew how to make stuff work back.

Americans right NOW have a desperate need for those who rise to great success, and the great privilege born from such fortunate industry to be wise while exhibiting whatever care they wish to bequeath upon our humble masses, and we, as a People, are greatly let down when these
denizens of commerce, or the arts, or athletics, or politics fall so pitifully short.

Bill Gates should probably NOW step down from the World stage, gather his estimable wealth with him, and just go away.
