Georgia School Brings Slavery, Slave Beatings Into Math Questions

News

Georgia's Gwinnett County School District is coming under fire after parents came across math homework featuring some really atrocious questions involving slavery. Two questions in particular -- one involving the number of oranges picked by slaves and another about the number of times Frederick Douglass might have been beaten in a week -- were apparently aimed at teaching third graders about multiplication. Nine teachers at Beaver Ridge Elementary School insist they were "attempting to do a cross-curricular activity with a book the children had read about abolitionist Frederick Douglass in their social studies class." Um, which book? These teachers might be decent at math, but they are terrible at social studies.


The offending questions read as follows:

Each tree had 56 oranges. If eight slaves pick them equally, then how much would each slave pick?

If Frederick got two beatings per day, how many beatings did he get in one week?

No words. A school district spokesperson, Sloan Roach, has responded by saying, "We’ve been working with human resources to determine what staff development is needed for the teachers and what actions may be warranted."

"Staff development." How about SCHOOL, Billy Madison style. [CBS News]

According to Rachel Campos Duffy, former reality TV personality and current Fox News personality, migrant baby jails are better than the "Projects". And she totally knows this for fact because she has a "black friend" who told her so. This totally mysterious black friend enlightened her on the horrors faced by black people in black places, which makes it perfectly okay for Trumpco to lock away those "privileged" brown babies. Also, stop being mean to her for spewing that hot garbage on the Laura Ingraham (who believes baby jails are like "Summer Camp") show, because it's not fair that you refuse to believe she has a black friend.
