August or February?

None of these articles state the race of the teachers in question. White racism is the most likely, but when I was working in schools, there were some black teachers who were pretty militant. Either way, completely messed up to put these on any sort of test.

Indeed. That really does depend on the amount of days in a month.

Also, do the people doing the whipping celebrate federal holidays? If so, a month like November or December would result in significantly fewer lashings than, say, August.

That's a bad question. After whipping him for 10 or 20 days you have to take a break. You don't want to lose your investment.

Are these "skin color" slaves, or "student loan debt" slaves?
 
2013-02-23 02:18:44 PM
I don't see the problem. It seems an impartial question. It's not like it's saying
"Since Winston tried to escape he forced his masters to punish him. Did he deserve 5 lashes or 10?"
"Correct, the answer was 15".

Its not unusual for some teachers to try and combine various sorts of historical situations with math in a synergistic manner. Especially during Black History Month. I doubt it really has much to do with the ethnicity or race of the teachers.

FTA:

A teacher had asked fourth-graders to write homework questions that blended math and social studies, education officials said. The teacher then used the students' questions, including the slave-related ones, as homework for the class.

Kid came up with it.  And to be honest, while gruesome, it was far more interesting than any question I had n grade school.

This. Suspend a few racist punks.

/actually, no; the social studies lesson was about slavery.

Since when is it not OK to talk about slavery?

It's in the  Bible, for Christ's sake.  That's the Good Book and everything in there is the word of God almighty.

Damned liberals have to ruin everything.

My take as well.

I would guess that these questions were intentionally offensive and absurd in a teacher's lame attempt at protesting a cross-disciplinary learning scheme.
 
2013-02-23 06:06:12 PM
More importantly, is proper technique being taught for whipping? You must follow through with a full turn, not just flail the arms around.
 
2013-02-23 06:07:15 PM
If schools are serious about prepping serfs for life in Merikuh, they best teach the ways of slavery.

We here at NYC PS59 would like to unreservedly apologize to the students and their parents for this question, which frankly is offensive and unwelcome as part of a cross-disciplinary class lesson. It was inappropriate and does not belong in our curriculum. We are sorry, and we promise that will not happen again.

Question 24 of the assignment will be reworded to remove any and all references to our nation's deplorable history in the North American slave trade. We are deeply and humbly sorry.



24) Nikki is a porn actress. Her specialty is gangbangs and she can accommodate a total of five cocks per day. If she does one full gangbang per day every day for a month, how many men will she have serviced by the end of that month?

Trick question, she works with the same guys every day, and one of them has 2 cocks.

I've seen her work.

Well, some teacher just learned why you don't let children answer questions unsupervised.

Seriously,  those liberal pantywastes will complain about anything,  should have seen the questions they had about the splatter coverage the average person jumping from the twin towers on 9/11 left.   but no it's the innocent subject of slavery  that gets them all upset,  i just don't get it.

If it were high schoolers instead of fourth graders writing the questions for that test, this type of question would not shock me. They'd just use the full name of one of the girls in the class.

The best thing that ever happened to me in math class was an uncle gave me an old book called "A Wartime Refresher in Mathematics". Math is significantly more interesting when the word problems involve adjusting bomb sights or the number of parts needed to build a tank.

Slaves have existed for centuries and aren't just black, you bunch of over-compensating morons.


Move past the past.

This is what happens when they demand teachers incorporate interdisciplinary lessons. Over in the English class it's probably going something like this: a female point met her lover, the longest side of a right triangle, at The Vertex under a moonlit sky. She began gently stroking his hypotenuse and in doing so enlarged the tangent ratio until the two became so heated that they exploded into an undefined realm.

I'm all out of butthurt and rage.  I'll have to be outraged later.

Reminds me of the Afghan school textbooks provided by the CIA to prepare the region for "freedom" i.e. decades of violent militant action. Things will never be fixed there until a new generation goes through stable secular schools where the students are not inculcated with violent ideologies.

Black History Month?  How about Black Current Events in Africa?
 
2013-02-23 06:30:27 PM
is it a whip used for sporting use, or is it an assault whip?
 
2013-02-23 06:30:51 PM
All of them.
 
2013-02-23 06:32:02 PM
In other news, fourth-graders are little fartknockers and there's a teacher who has no idea how to filter them.

When I see the word whipped I can only think of whipped cream.
 
2013-02-23 06:37:21 PM
I find that lashings just aren't as effective as they once were. I traded in my whip for a wooden cane months ago.
