Gates Foundation behind effort to end white supremacy in math instruction

• Washington Examiner

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is the only donor listed on a website for a group dedicated to eliminating racism from the nation's math curriculum, which would be accomplished, in part, by eliminating the need for students to show their work after solving a math problem.

"A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction is an integrated approach to mathematics that centers Black, Latinx, and Multilingual students in grades 6-8, addresses barriers to math equity, and aligns instruction to grade-level priority standards," an introduction to the group's website reads. "The Pathway offers guidance and resources for educators to use now as they plan their curriculum, while also offering opportunities for ongoing self-reflection as they seek to develop an anti-racist math practice. The toolkit 'strides' serve as multiple on-ramps for educators as they navigate the individual and collective journey from equity to anti-racism."
