Well, they still `present` math, but in order to avoid hurting some idiots self-esteem, the teachers are not allowed to keep grades.
Teacher: "Little Johnnie, what is two plus two." Johnnie: "Uh, seven?" Teacher (old style): "I`m sorry Johnnie, that`s incorrect. Please study more." Teacher (new style): "That`s great, Johnnie! You just got the correct answer to another question."
(and before anyone says `that`s asinine`, please realize that is how some teachers have been instructed to handle incorrect [or, `differently-correct`] answers).
Any student excelling in math must never be congratulated, as this will make the lazy little students `feel less capable`.
Or as some idiot teacher put it: `You are unique...just like everyone else.` (which is another way of saying, no one is unique)

If you look at my 12:48:53 post, you will notice that I made the same argument that 2+2=5 could be a true statement, for very high values of 2. (math geek here, too).
BUT, in my example, the basic idea is that (o) represents a single object or unit (example: a rock). So you're only dealing with natural numbers. (a rock plus a rock equals two rocks, but does not equal three rocks)
From natural numbers you could advance to integers. Eventually to rational (fractional) numbers.
Thus the very basic logic can be built on to develop more complicated language.

I thought our schools stopped teaching math back in the 60's when social justice, revisionist history, self esteem and environmentalism became the focus of our schools?
Good to know that somewhere, some schools still teach one of the basics!
