California’s ‘Equity’ Math Rejects Existence of Naturally Gifted Students: ‘All Children Capable at Highest Levels’

California’s ‘Equity’ Math Rejects Existence of Naturally Gifted Students: ‘All Children Capable at Highest Levels’. By Susan Berry.

“All students are capable of making these contributions and achieving these abilities at the highest levels,” the introductory chapter of the framework draft from January states. …

“All students deserve powerful mathematics,” it asserts. “We reject ideas of natural gifts and talents.”

Way to go California, leading the USA and the world! Asserting ideology over reality always works!

Since 1980, every runner in an Olympics 100 meters men’s final has been of West African descent. This is an amazing coincidence if everyone is capable at the highest levels, or if all groups of people are statistically equal. But about what you’d expect if you expect group differences driven by natural selection and evolution.

This woke Californian edict is just another attempt by the mediocre to get a leg up by political means, because they cannot compete with talent.
