California Accused of ‘Politicizing K-12 Math’ if New Framework Goes Through
Posted: Wed. May 11, 2022, 11:18am PT

Policy Report: “Critical Math” Doesn’t Add Up: Race Consciousness and Radical Egalitarianism in the Curriculum

California is in the process of revising its Mathematics Framework, a nearly thousand-page document which provides guidance on how to teach K-12 math in public schools. The public commenting period ends May 16 and Ze’ev Wurman has commented quite a lot, including co-writing an open letter to California state leadership condemning the framework. The letter was signed by over 1,200 professionals—mostly university-level professors in STEM subjects, science, tech, engineering, and math. Since the letter, some elements of the framework have been revised, but Wurman, research fellow at Independent Institute, says the core of his criticism still stands.

SCOTUS Roe Ruling Leaks, Biden's Unconstitutional Disinformation Board | Independent Outlook 37
Posted: Tue. May 10, 2022, 2:36pm PT

Does President Joe Biden have what it takes to “stand with Ukraine” without provoking a wider war? Will Biden’s “Disinformation Governance Board” protect Americans or quench their freedoms? How could the U.S. Supreme Court allow the unprecedented leak of its draft opinion revoking Roe v. Wade? And how will the Court navigate the apparently complex religious freedom cases now before it? We’ll discuss all these issues and more on this week's episode of Independent Outlook.

Putin’s Desperation, Florida’s Culture War, Goodbye Mask Mandates | Independent Outlook 36
Posted: Tue. May 3, 2022, 4:29pm PT

In this 36th episode of Independent Outlook, David Theroux, Williamson Evers, and Graham Walker discuss if it's easy to agree that Vladimir Putin’s war tactics are monstrous and malignant. But what happens in Ukraine if Putin is getting desperate after Ukraine sank his naval flagship with Western-supplied armaments? Is U.S. President Joe Biden displaying the kind of judicious statesmanlike leadership that the moment requires? On the home front, the culture war is heating up in Florida as Governor DeSantis challenges Disney and scrutinizes Florida’s public-school curriculum. Can we navigate the hot rhetoric to see if Florida’s policies threaten liberty, or protect it? And what is the future of mask mandates, now that a federal court has pulled the plug on the CDC’s authority to require masks? We will discuss all this and more on this week's upcoming episode of Independent Outlook.

Posted: Wed. April 27, 2022, 11:19am PT

Research Fellow David Legates, co-author of Hot Talk, Cold Science appears on the Matt Buff show on AM 950 and 94.9 FM The Answer Orlando, FL. The climate is always changing and always will, says Legates. Weather anomalies are blamed on anthropogenic climate change, and climate alarmism, especially on social media is frightening people, including children causing unnecessary anxiety. Legates speaks about his personal experience with the “Climategat” scandal when opposing scientists were blocked from publishing their studies on climate change. The IPCC and climate alarmist progressives, Legates says, are trying to get a great reset to global socialism.
