Virginia Eliminates Accelerated Math Courses Because Equity

When everyone is super, no one will be.

The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) is eliminating accelerated math courses before 11th grade to “[i]improve equity in mathematics learning opportunities.”

Loudoun County school board member Ian Serotkin announced Tuesday that the “Virginia Mathematics Pathways Initiative (VMPI),” is a “a sweeping initiative by the Virginia Department of Education to revamp the K-12 math curriculum statewide over the next few years” by “eliminat[ing] ALL math acceleration prior to 11th grade.”

As I learned from a revealing article in the Federalist, Virginia has decided the way to pursue equity in education is to eliminate all advanced math classes until the 11th grade.
The way they intend to “level the playing field” is to take away the opportunity for academically gifted students to maximize their potential.
Education ought to always be about maximizing every child’s potential.
But the social justice warriors don’t care about children or education—they care only about a political philosophy that values the group over the individual.
But even if your goal is to help the group, robbing the mathematically gifted of the opportunity to accelerate does not truly help the group in the long run.
Three things are going to happen in Virginia.
1. Homeschooling numbers are going to skyrocket.
2. Math tutors are going to make a fortune.
3. Virginia will elect a Republican Governor and House of Delegates.
This is socialism. This is why the Soviet citizens had to wait years to get refrigerators and cars. And consumer goods were shoddy and scarce.
But even the USSR wasn’t so crazy as to fail to teach advanced math to their brightest students.
People with a dangerous philosophy are in control of our state. We must and we will take it back.

What is Class?
==============

"Class never runs scared. It is sure-footed and confident in the
knowledge that you can meet life head on and handle whatever comes
along."

"Jacob had it. Esau didn't. Symbolically, we can look to Jacob's
wrestling match with the angel. Those who have class have wrestled
with their own personal angel and won a victory that marks them
thereafter."

"Class never makes excuses. It takes its lumps and learns from past
mistakes."

"Class is considerate of others. It knows that good manners are
nothing more than a series of small sacrifices."

"Class bespeaks an aristocracy that has nothing to do with ancestors
or money. The most affluent blueblood can be totally without class
while the descendant of a Welsh miner may ooze class from every pore."

"Class never tries to build itself up by tearing others down. Class is
already up and need not strive to look better by making others look
worse."

"Class can "walk with kings and keep its virtue and talk with crowds
and keep the common touch." Everyone is comfortable with the person
who has class because he is comfortable with himself."

"If you have class you don't need much of anything else. If you don't
have it, no matter what else you have, it doesn't make much
difference." ~Ann Landers
