Texas State University Looking To Hire Math Education Professors Committed To 'Social Justice’
Tom Knighton, PJ Media
There are a few classes where one's politics really are irrelevant. Despite Leftist claims that everything is subjective, there are a few places where that just can't be true. Subjectivity may change someone's outlook on history, for example, but it doesn't do anything about changing the fact that 2+2=4.
But that's not stopping Texas State University
Texas State University is hoping to hire two Math Education professors with a demonstrated and longstanding commitment to “social justice.”
According to the job postings on Inside Higher Ed, the two new professors must not only share TSU’s commitment to “education equity” and “social justice,” but should preferably also have a demonstrated record of engagement or academic research on the issue.
The openings are for both tenured or tenure-track positions at the “ranks of Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor,” with different levels of social-justice expertise preferred at each level.
Among the preferred qualifications for the Assistant Professor rank is a “demonstrated knowledge and engagement” with issues including “social justice, equity, access, and multilingual learning,” while the Associate and Full Professor ranks prefer “evidence of research and practices” on such topics.
Multilingual learning makes some sense, because schools do have a number of students who don't fully grasp English. The rest?
