Stanford prof calls cops on Berkeley prof who exposed her $5K/hour consulting fee

A professor at Stanford University in California has been branded “Professor Karen” after she allegedly threatened to call the cops on a black professor who revealed her $5,000-an-hour consultation fee.

Jo Boaler, a white education professor at Stanford, has been embroiled in a heated spat with Berkeley University’s Jelani Nelson — one that went viral on Twitter earlier this week and resulted in accusations of racism and harassment.

Nelson and Boaler’s very public beef is rooted in a controversial debate over how to teach math to California’s K-12 students.

Boaler is behind the ongoing effort to change the math curriculum framework in California that includes, in part, increasing equity, pushing algebra 1 back to 9th grade and applying social justice principles to lessons.   

Opponents, including Nelson, say the proposed changes will negatively affect students and leave them unprepared for higher education.


$5000 an hour? Who knew teaching 9th grade math could be so lucrative?

They're going to defer algebra until the children are 15? Christ, we'd got our "O-levels" at that age and were starting calculus.
