The elite further dummification of public education, as if it isn't bad enough already.Of course, there really isn't any need for much math past counting to 10 on your fingers moving forward into the future, so why bother teaching it? Anyhow, it's been decades since any kids graduating 6th grade could add without using the calculator of their smartphones, so teaching algebra in high schools is a hopelessly frustrating task even if the HS Math teacher managed a C and passed it herself, so lets forget it and keep the kids entertained somehow.
