Teacher tries to get students to feel math, and gets in trouble

Say what you want, but I have constantly had arguments with morons, practically always leftists twits, about why the educational establishment has had to dumb down and politicize education – meaning turning everything that now passes for teaching into a pro-marxism lesson – because according to them, kids today have trouble associating what little they still teach them with their life experiences, and thus cant relate. Queue a teacher that decided to make it real. From the article:

This teacher gets a D- in racial sensitivity and an F in common sense.

A teacher at an Alabama middle school has been placed on administrative leave after it was discovered she distributed a questionable math quiz last Friday to her students that referenced gang-related activities like drive-by shootings, cocaine and prostitution.

According to parents of kids at Cranford Burns Middle School in Mobile, the students were shocked after reading questions like these:

“Tyrone knocked up 4 girls in the gang. There are 20 girls in his gang. What is the exact percentage of girls Tyrone knocked up?”

“Pedro got 6 years for murder. He also got $10,000 for the hit. If his common-law wife spends $100 of his hit money per month, how much money will be left when he gets out?”

Dwayne pimps 3 ho’s. If the price is $85 per trick, how many tricks per day must each ho turn to support Dwayne’s $800 per day crack habit?

Parent Erica Hall told NBC affiliate WPMI that she was outraged to find out that longtime Language Arts teacher JoAnne Bolser would hand such inappropriate content out to her son’s eighth grade class.

Say what you want, but I bet if these morons want to keep using the argument that education problems should reflect real life problems, then this teacher was doing them a favor. About the only question I found problematic was the one about Dwayne, and that is because it doesn’t factor in the cost of the ho’s crack habit Dwayne as a good pimp is sure to pay for. Know what I am saying?

It’s cool this shit comes out of Hollywood I guess, but when we do it in school, on advice from people that tell us we should be doing this sort of thing since real life examples help kids learn better, we get drama. And why was there no questions about busting caps in someone’s ass in that test, huh?

    Teachers must be contemporary. This is what passes for math questions these days;

    “Every hour 3 transgender males are caught loitering in the girls bathroom. In 1/3 of these instances a biological girl went to the principle’s office to complain, where each of these complaining girls was expelled for being intolerant and bigoted. Assuming an 8 hours in a school day, how many girls were expelled?  Extra credit, clearly the parents of these girls are to blame, should they be imprisoned or would a fine suffice?”

    We have seen some that hocus pocus math right here on this blog, like taking this;

    CBO projects a $534 billion deficit in fiscal year 2016, about $100 billion more than in 2015

    and claiming this is lowering the deficit by two thirds, yeah, really.

    Sad world we are living in Rich. Real fucking sad…

    Saying, felling, and believing in the “right things” has surpassed accomplishing things, which is why we have the current crop of credentialed incompetent elites that harbor anger towards those of us that refuse to show the right deference, humility, and admiration towards them, despite the fact that they are nothing but a bunch of criminal bunglers.

    They will crucify this teacher  for doing this, but the people that have let us to the brink of the abyss continue to hold power and sway, and remain not just above the law, but look down on us rubes for daring to tell it like it is.

    Fucking smoke and mirrors…

    This “quiz” has been floating around the internet for 20 years.  I can’t believe that everyone hasn’t seen it yet.  But, every few years, some idiot prints it out and hands it to a class.
