When Mathematics Teacher Educators Come Under Attack
teacher education is in an interesting historical moment. On the one hand,
there is greater realization within our field of the connections between
systems of power and mathematics (O’Neil, 2016). Those in the field are
starting to acknowledge how mathematics education can be viewed as dehumanizing
for both students and teachers as well as what might constitute rehumanizing
practices (Gutiérrez, in press). Professional organizations are calling for
teachers to move beyond simplistic notions of equity to understand these power
dimensions and challenge the system on behalf of (and in community with) Black,1
Indigenous,2 and Latinx3 students in particular.
