Minnesota Catholic school offers ‘social justice algebra’

The class has done away with tests, replacing them with projects that use algebra to "solve real world problems and help marginalized communities."

Some students at Benilde-St. Margaret’s (BSM), a Catholic preparatory school for grades 7-12 in St. Louis Park, are actively working to weave “social justice” themes into the curriculum.

The school’s student newspaper, Knight Errant, published an article last Thursday which stated that social justice is “a key part of Catholic education,” though it did not make a necessary distinction between the historic meaning of the term and its contemporary 21st century meaning.

“BSM has committed to upholding the seven Catholic Social teachings in its strategic plan, and incorporating social justice into the BSM community is an important part of meeting that goal,” the article claims.

For the 2021-22 academic year, the prep school added a “social justice Algebra II class” to the curriculum. According to Knight Errant, the class has done away with tests, replacing them with projects that use algebra to “solve real world problems and help marginalized communities.”

“So far this year we’ve talked about climate change, and ice thawing data from Alaska, and they’re currently doing a project on the median housing cost and the minimum wage in Minneapolis and St. Paul,” said John Groess, who teaches the class.
