Appropriate Education Spending

 3/12/22 Washington Free Beacon:

A Maryland school district paid an "antiracist" consulting firm nearly $1 million to ask parents if their six-year-old children were being taught enough about racism.

The survey, a copy of which was obtained by the Washington Free Beacon, gives Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) parents a chance to rate the district's "antiracism" curricula. The survey asks parents if they believe their children are being "taught about the negative effects of racism in their classes" and whether school libraries "represent people of diverse races, skin colors, ethnicities, and cultures."

3/12/22 Daily Wire:

A full 85% of students in Maryland are not proficient in math, in large part due to the COVID-19 shutdowns of the past two years.

Fox Baltimore reported that results from recent state test scores revealed the “stunning amount of learning loss,” a prediction the outlet said experts made during the pandemic that has now come true.

Teaching kids that racism is bad is a noble, even essential tool.  This does not need to be a politically charged and divisive issue.  

But math is an essential tool.
