The moonbats will want math & science removed from education curricullums!  It's RACIST!
"whut da hell you mean dat pi  r squared?    Pie is round!  and it ain't "ARE" but "IS" foo!"
"my geometry teacher axed me 'bout a rectangle.. I says to her, 'hey bitch I didn't wreck yo raggedy ass angle!" 
"den my teacher told me to use the Euclidian Algorithm.  I didn't even know dat Al Gore had Euclidia!  he musta got that clap from screwin' some skank ho'.  Mah sista has Euclidia!"

Are we surprised?!   NOPE!!!

Feminists said that science needs to be done through feminism or it's sexist and racist. 

There's that video of the black South African girl at the college debate saying that science is racist because it doesn't include things black Africans know are fact, like magic.

It appears that Pluto is no longer a planet due to the feminist movement in science.

I was always disturbed that although intelligence tests are used in SCHOOLS.. it is illegal to test someone's intelligence when they are applying for a job because that is RACIST.  It seems that certain races feel that things such as math are unfair to their race.   I have to add one comment.. I used to work with a guy in a place in which all data was entered in feet, inches, and 16ths of an inch... so that   10 feet 7.5 inches would be entered as  10 7 8    (the 8 for 8/16).  The guy could not grasp the concept that   1/2 = 2/4 = 4/8 = 8/16      He had to write those equivalent fractions on a piece of paper and tape it to his monitor!      This ENRAGED me that I was hired to do the same job as this complete MORON.   I could do in 30 minutes what it took that moron 40 hours to do (not an exaggeration).  You would think I would get praise for doing that.  Instead, I was accused of trying to get him fired.  This data was used to order steel beams and columns which are typically 8 to 20 feet long, and can weigh tons each.  If you input lengths too long, they have to cut the steel in the field and manually add new holes for bolts which costs hundreds of $$$ per beam.  If you input lengths that are too short.. that steel becomes SCRAP.  In just one job, one idiot input column lengths 6 inches too short.. on 10 columns.. which cost the company $50,000 in unusable steel!   The cost of detailing the steel is about 5% of the cost of the steel.. so that one idiot's mistake wiped out all the profit for that job!   The stupidest guy in the office with the fraction problem was from Alabama.. he was hired because he was from Alabama and the boss of that office was from Alabama.  Couldn't fire his ass because he's a good ol' boy!  It is incredible that the guy was ever HIRED. 

In a related topic.. throughout history, intellectuals have been routinely killed off because they are considered to be a "threat".   One example of that is nuclear scientists that are assassinated to prevent nukes.

  Bith fight That's not what her paper says. I just read it. Surprisingly, it's actually interesting and has zero to do with white privilege or removing math and science from the curriculum.

Google Books has the two essays the article you posted points to. You can read them for free. The first one, the one the article quotes from, is Chapter Two from page 11 and is actually very interesting hitting on what it means for corporations to run charter schools for profit and how that affects public education. The author then goes on to talk about how those external influences affect the math department. The gist of what she says is that if you're a poor kid in a public school where the teachers have to keep you (unlike charter schools which can remove the student if they underperform) the student feels extra pressure. Math is something they can't relate to because it deals with abstracts disconnected from the students daily experiences. The author is calling for a new way to train math teachers in how to make math accessible while not falling into the mindset that they have to aim for good scores on the national tests.

She does say that her families background is activist and that language creeps into her part of the paper. She's also quoting from specialized sociology and math research books that use specific jargon. Combined, it's a lot to take in but she's in no way telling people there needs to be less math. She appears to be saying that there should be less standardized testing or less teaching to take the standardized tests.

Read for yourself and decide.

https://books.google.co.jp/books?id=z885DwAAQBAJ&pg=PA11&lpg=PA11&dq=Political+Conocimiento+for+Teaching+Mathematics:+Why+Teachers+Need+It+and+How+to+Develop+It&source=bl&ots=EHabPgWuOD&sig=Ax54eAquejrBFIiRrreWh8PNoNI&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi627mi8YvXAhUMEbwKHV2ZD9EQ6AEINDAC#v=onepage&q=Political%20Conocimiento%20for%20Teaching%20Mathematics%3A%20Why%20Teachers%20Need%20It%20and%20How%20to%20Develop%20It&f=false

The other chapter is from page 150.



After reading that I became interested in her thought progression. Here's a more accessable paper written in 2013. At least read the first paragraph to get a feeling of her thesis.
