Bill Gates’ Money Behind ‘Perverse’ Curriculum Teaching Math Instruction Is ‘White Supremacy’

Hannah Grossman, Fox News, April 2, 2024

Billionaire Bill Gates has invested billions of dollars in education over the years, notably bolstering far-left ideas, including assertions that mathematics instruction is “White supremacy” and children are born sexual.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation funded a curriculum called “A Pathway to Equitable Math Instruction,” which is run by The Education Trust-West. The organization listed the Gates Foundation under its acknowledgment section for the curriculum on their website stating, “We also wish to thank the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for their generous financial support of this project.”

The curriculum from The Education Trust-West titled “Dismantling Racism in Mathematics Instruction” offers tips and tricks to educators to turn mathematicians in K-12 schools into “antiracist math educators

It also offered “Exercises for educators to reflect on their own biases to transform their instructional practice.”

Teachers have a central role in “deconstructing racism in mathematics” and “dismantling white supremacy in math classrooms by making visible the toxic characteristics of white supremacy culture with respect to math,” the group states.


About 40% of Gates’ K-12 education budget goes into math, according to Education Week. In 2022, the Gates Foundation announced over $1 billion in funds for math education.

In addition to funding math education initiatives, the Gates Foundation also provides funds for social and emotional learning (SEL), a billion-dollar industry in K-12 education which claims to develop students’ self-awareness, self-control and interpersonal skills.

According to the Gates Foundation website, it provided $500,000 in November 2020 for a curriculum developed at Yale University, called RULER, with lessons probing into the student’s emotions, personal relationships, traumas, beliefs and psychological triggers. The stated purpose of the grant was “to support the growth of RULER in the 2020-21 school year.”

One section of the curriculum focused on teaching students to recognize societal norms and rules, and how those can be defied: “Make sure to explain that even though we call these patterns ‘rules,’ we do not need to follow them.”

The curriculum encouraged kids to “see red” on their “mood meters,” to be enraged by social justice issues and said educators should bring inflammatory images into the classroom to cultivate the rage among their students. It further asked teachers to “nudge” children into feelings of anger by using emotionally-charged imagery.


Parents raised concerns the Gates-funded curriculum was turning kids into raging social justice activists through emotional manipulation.
