2 + 2 = Social Justice
The far left unionists are now successfully politicizing math in the classroom.
In March Chicago Teachers Union president Karen Lewis urged fellow teachers to politicize math at their schools. Lewis spoke at the Network for Public Education conference in Texas.

“People always talk about how that there’s no politics and values in math. That you can teach math and there’s no place for social justice. So let me tell you how Bob (Peterson) deals with that,” Lewis said.
She went on to describe a math story problem about money and the cost of pencils.
“That’s a very political statement because it’s all about consumerism – it’s about buying stuff, right?
“Bob Peterson tells them about José working in a factory making piecemeal clothes. He uses the same numbers and gets the same answer. And yes, math is political, too.”
