Finally, a state taking education seriously by preventing the so called "gifted" students from getting to far ahead of everyone else.

From the guidelinges that the state is putting forward.

I'm glad that the California Education system is realizing that things like Natural Ability is ********, the only difference between LBJ or Albert Einstein and anyone else is the SOCIATAL PRESSURES.All students deserve powerful mathematics; we reject ideas of natural gifts and talents," reads a bulletpoint in chapter one of the framework. "The belief that 'I treat everyone the same' is insufficient: Active efforts in mathematics teaching are required in order to counter the cultural forces that have led to and continue to perpetuate current inequities."

The Second Chapter that they're putting forward on their guidelines is particularly inspiring.

Finally they understand that Math isn't about functions and formulas and coming to exact answers, it's about Racial Justice and Protesting.The entire second chapter of the framework is aboutconnecting math to social justice concepts like bias and racism:"Teachers can support discussions that center mathematical reasoning rather than issues of status and bias by intentionally defining what it means to do and learn mathematics together in ways that include and highlight the languages, identities, and practices of historically marginalized communities." Teachers should also think creatively about what math even entails: "To encourage truly equitable and engaging mathematics classrooms we need to broaden perceptions of mathematics beyond methods and answers so that students come to view mathematics as a connected, multi-dimensional subject that is about sense making and reasoning, to which they can contribute and belong."

For instance, if 80 people are protesting the racially economic injustice of a pipe line and 43 have to *GO TO WORK* because we live in an evil capitalist system that forces you to produce goods and services others want just so you can SURVIVE how, what percentage of the protestors are remaining at the protest.
