Parents, Chicago Teacher Union Boss Wants to Teach Math Using Social Justice
Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis is desperate enough to pull that old saw about social justice out of her bag of union boss tricks and wants to use it to teach math, reasoning, “. . . math is political. . .” So not only will teachers be forced to pay forced dues to a union which doesn’t serve their needs, now they will have to endure teaching a curriculum advocated by those same bosses. Sarah Hurtubise has the story in the Daily Caller News Foundation.
Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis wants schools to teach social justice, not “consumerism,” she said in a video.
Lewis spoke about ways to avoid “consumerist” messages while teaching subjects typically seen as apolitical, like math, at the annual conference of the Network for Public Education, a progressive advocacy group that backs public schools.
