Hundreds of college professors blast ‘woke’ math movement



Hundreds of prominent professors — including top names from CUNY, NYU, and Columbia — have signed a letter blasting the erosion of math rigor in grades K to 12.
Arguing that curtailing advanced math programs puts American kids at a global disadvantage, the coalition called the movement “the height of irresponsibility.”
Some school districts — including in New York — have slowly eliminated advanced math options for some students as a means of easing achievement gaps.
City parents have revolted in several Department of Education schools where administrators discontinued accelerated math options.
Officials at Lab Middle School for Collaborative Studies in Manhattan were forced to reinstate honors math classes after a parental outcry in June.
The Robert Wagner Middle School on the Upper East Side also sought to ax its math honors program amid a fierce backlash.
