That is like saying goth is very popular. It isn?t that popular.
I refer to it because it is a good example of teachers who have stopped teaching mathematics, and instead do things mostly for themselves and their work life. Fortunately, most schools don?t allow it to get this bad. Even with their disadvantaged youth. And then there is the common core. This is a big country and you can find some group of teachers doing just about anything. There are even schools where they don?t teach at all.
