    what religious principle do you have against arithmetic, Calvin? why, the same as history, social studies, grammar, physical education, any topic in school of course!

    The irony is Oregon (and California) educators are claiming mathematics is racist.

    I’ve always thought that there was something sinful about prime numbers. And when you add them together, it makes it worse.

    When I was in 3rd grade I rebelled against arithmetic! I refused to learn addition and actively fought against subtraction. I spent the next 15 years believing that I hated math. What I didn’t know at the time was that my 3rd grade teacher was dying of cancer and had zero patience with a problematic 8 y/o who was acting out after her mother’s remarriage and separation from her younger brother. You can imagine my surprise when I discovered, at age 23, that not only did I love math, but that I wanted to major in it (thus adding another year to the six I’d already spent in college) and make it my life’s work—40 years employment as “Math Analyst”. Now I look back with desperate sadness at that unhappy little girl and that long-suffering teacher … I forgive you both.

    I like how Watterson misspells words and inserts uppercase letters where they shouldn’t be. Just like my six-year old granddaughter does.

    I did not think that being an IGNORANT deplorerable was a religion. I know that they act fanactical, but I was not going to give justification for existing.

    If you think the correct answer is ‘666’, I could see where you might draw that conclusion. Start with a faulty premise, and you can logically reach some pretty strange conclusions.

    These days many would take that as a valid position. Answering 3 or 2.718… would play well on conservative talk radio.

    It is technically possible for this to happen in my school district. We have a policy that allows families to opt out of learning subject matter due to personal belief. It is so broadly written that they could opt out of literally anything as long as they write a letter describing the personal belief involved and how the subject infringes on that belief. Thankfully, almost no one knows that the policy exists.

    I once answered an exam question, “What difference does it make?”

    This, naturally was marked wrong. But then that was crossed out and marked, “OK. Full credit.”
