As Bill and Melinda Gates aggressively push for the vaccination of the entire world population against COVID, their non-profit organization is pouring millions of dollars into an educational program that espouses the elimination of racism in mathematics.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, one of the most influential non-profit groups in the world, is pushing a radical new program that allegedly purges math curriculum of racist practices. Some of those racist practices include showing your work and arriving at the correct answer.
The curriculum was conceived by a conglomerate of 25 educational organizations called A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction. There curriculum makes it clear that they believe asking students to show their work and find the right answer is an “inherently racist practice.”
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is the only donor listed on the organization’s homepage.
Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is bankrolling a group of activists who believe math is racist. They chide the “concept of mathematics being purely objective” as “unequivocally false” & argue focusing on the “right answer” is an example of white supremacy. https://t.co/ZdTx7WXhDm

In fact, over the past decade, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has awarded over of $140 million to a variety of groups associated with Pathway. Their “antiracist resources” are at the epicenter of a new training course for teachers offered by the Oregon Department of Education throughout the state.
Three of the most prominent organizations receiving grant money from the Gates’ are The Education Trust, Teach Plus, and WestEd, all non-profit 501c organizations.
The Education Trust, a group out of California, release Pathway’s antiracist “toolkit,” this past September. They have received $86 million from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, including a June grant award of $3.6 million.
Teach Plus, whose board members include former US Rep. George Miller (D-CA), and Obama administration Secretary of Education John King Jr. (who is also president of The Education Trust), received more than $27 million.
WestEd, a nonprofit whose mission statement says it is tasked with dismantling “systemic barriers” in schools, has received over $35 million from the Gates’ foundation since 2009.
Additionally, a group calling itself UnboundEd, dedicated to the “disruption of systemic racism” in the classroom, received roughly $14 million in grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation since 2015.
The Foundation has awarded smaller but no less significant sums of grant capital to other groups behind the Pathway.
I don’t know. Maybe the people who don’t want black and brown kids to learn math correctly are the *actual* white supremacists. https://t.co/q54VFP1bv8

The effort promoted by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is focused on bringing the dangerous, divisive and racist Critical Race Theory into the classroom.
Critical Race Theory is based on the false narrative that American political and economic institutions – as well as American society on the whole, are inherently racist.
What makes the Pathway curriculum unique is its focus on “racism in mathematics.”
Pathway’s first teacher guidebook, “Dismantling Racism in Mathematics Instruction,” instructs teachers to realize how math “is used to uphold capitalist, imperialist, and racist views.”
The conglomerate of organizations has released five curriculum guidebooks designed for use by teachers in middle school grades.
The guidebooks instruct teachers to “honor” when students fail to utilize correct problem-solving strategies and to identify “white supremacist practices” within the education system. The theory here is to blame “white supremacy” and “inherent racism” as the cause of minority students’ “underachievement.”
