Rather than lifting students up, the establishment’s manifesto calls for teaching down Calculus.Cancel culture has come for calculus. After decades of student activism and the work of educator-activists dedicated to raising academic rigor, their hard-fought battles have resulted in a greater cross-section of students having access to Advanced Placement courses. However, officials in several states have been considering changes to the curriculum that represent a huge step backwards: discouraging students from taking advanced math courses.While proposals have been floated in several states, California has moved the closest towards adopting new standards discouraging the teaching of advanced mathematics, particularly the instruction of high school calculus.
