Science - under attack from both Right and Left

There is plenty of evidence of attacks on science education by the religious right, especially when it comes to evolution.

But the Left is also inclined to indulge in anti-science as Gene Expression notes -

Anti-Racist Multicultural Math

A school in Newton, Massachusetts introduced a new approach to maths teaching -

...the math curriculum was redesigned to emphasize "Newton's commitment to active anti-racist education" for the elementary and middle schools. This meant that no longer were division, multiplication, fractions and decimals the first priority for teaching math.
Needless to say students' maths scores plummeted.
