In other words, that a few schools in a few small towns teach it

I'm reminded of the famous mathematician Ramanujan. I wonder how he
would have turned out if his teachers had taught gibberish alongside
his mathematics in the same class, with the same text, at the same
time all under the moniker of 'mathematics?' By the way, his family
was very devout.
