We don't need no math education

In this Discriminations post, the Virginia Board of Education president is quoted as saying: "We're trying to make sure every teacher who walks into a classroom knows their content area," and the author points out Jackson's "use of the plural pronoun, their, to refer back to a singular antecedent, teacher."

Apart from the grammar, the story underlying the post was interesting as it said that non-math teachers will not have pass math tests.
