College Chancellor Fights To Get Rid Of Algebra Because It’s ‘Unfair’

Eloy Ortiz Oakley fights to get rid of algebra because he believes that would help the college to have more black graduates…

The left always wants to play the race card and accuse republicans of racism. Let me be the first to say that this right here is racism! This college Chancellor is implying that black people can’t learn algebra! This is so untrue and ridiculous…

From Conservative 101:

Eloy Ortiz Oakley, chancellor of California Community Colleges System argued against forcing students in college to learn algebra. It’s a “civil rights issue,” said Oakley. Basically the argument is that if college was easier, more black people would have college degrees. Wow.

“This is a civil rights issue, but this is also something that plagues all Americans — particularly low-income Americans. If you think about all the underemployed or unemployed Americans in this country who cannot connect to a job in this economy — which is unforgiving of those students who don’t have a credential — the biggest barrier for them is this algebra requirement. It’s what has kept them from achieving a credential,” said Oakley.

He argued against this just being a way to make college easier. “I hear that a lot and unfortunately nothing could be farther from the truth. Somewhere along the lines, since the 1950s, we decided that the only measure of a student’s ability to reason or to do some sort of quantitative measure is algebra,” he said.

Well, America…we dumbed down high school graduation requirements about 25 years ago. We lowered the requirements for a teaching degree. We replaced civics with social studies. We’ve made simple math a convoluted nightmare.

Why don’t we just stand out on the sidewalk and hand out degrees instead?

    The obvious extension of this Oakley idiot’s view is to remove all requirements for blacks – just collect tuition and give them a special ‘black’ diploma.

    Is correct English (as opposed to street version of it) also difficult for black students to handle? How about history, goegraphy, physics and chemistry? Why not to skip education all together? Then life will be much easier for them. Is that what you have in mind?
