Profs Argue K-12 Science Lessons Should Inspire Activism
“we propose justice-centered STEM education as one example of a future approach”
This is straight out of Mao’s Little Red Book. Endless revolution.

Professors argue K-12 science lessons should prompt activism
A pair of scholars who train the next generation of K-12 teachers recommend that science educators adopt a justice-centered approach to lesson plans that emphasize “explaining and solving pressing societal challenges that directly impact students’ lives, communities, and society.”
New York University Professor Okhee Lee and University of Miami’s Professor Scott Grapin wrote that “science and engineering education remain silent about disparities that underlie pressing societal challenges.”
The scholars argue that middle and high school science teachers “fail to provide opportunities for students to critically evaluate how science and engineering have played a role in historical and current injustices.”
To remedy this, the scholars recommend STEM educators adopt a justice-centered approach inside the classroom that emphasizes “explaining and solving pressing societal challenges that directly impact students’ lives, communities, and society.”
This would subsequently prompt student advocacy and activism, they wrote.
Lee and Grapin did not respond to a request from The College Fix seeking comment.
I invite you to read my latest blog with @TdiShelton and @GrapinScott, where we propose justice-centered STEM education as one example of a future approach that addresses pressing societal challenges while centering justice. https://t.co/6QRH1QUy9F#STEM #education #science pic.twitter.com/K8DLRwWpZL

Honestly, this reminds me of nothing more than spammers at the dawn of the Internet. People would flame them for injecting their commercial comment or their irrelevant special-interest comment into a completely unrelated thread. One of the most common responses that resulted was self-righteousness: “This information is so important that everyone needs to see it, right away. It’s much more important than the other trivial commentary in this thread. You have no right to silence me.”
Well, this is exactly what the social justice assholes are now doing to… pretty much every other conversation in the world. All you really need to stop it is for the people in actual power to look them in the eye and say, “No — now shut up and get back to work.” But nobody will… or they actively encourage it for reasons of their own.
Pure scientism and indoctrination.
What they keep calling ‘justice’ isn’t.
