'Dos plus Dos = Cinco de Mayo!' Wise Latino Rochelle Gutiérrez es mucho stupidoGutiérrez argues that a model of knowledge needed for teaching mathematics
and addressing equity involves political knowledge. An important component to developing this political knowledge is being able to recognize multiple realities (Nepantla), developing conocimiento with students, becoming comfortable with uncertainty, and seeing tension as a means to birth new knowledge. Rochelle Gutiérrez is Professor of Curriculum and Instruction and Latina/Latino Studies at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. -- Rethinking the Knowledge Needed to Teach Mathematics, A Talk Given by Rochelle Gutiérrez

This is why winning both the White House and both houses of Congress will be insufficient. Both the goofy and the malignant left are so embedded in our various institutions, that it may take a very long time to wrest control from them.

Not to worry, the modern university will crumble to dust when the financial shockwave hits. It just makes too much sense to study online. Alas, I'll miss college football.

"She is PI on an NSF grant that seeks to understand what it takes to develop high school mathematics teachers who engage their students in rigorous mathematics and are committed to social justice."
Why is the NSF funding this fascist garbage? Oh I forgot. The NSF is just another gang of commissars.
