Apr 19, 2022 07:00 PM : Grades and Test Scores Do Not Define Us as Math Learners: Cultivating Transformative Spaces for Anti-Racist Mathematics Education (Open to All)
The COVID pandemic only amplified existing mathematics inequities in our schools that did harm to the children of Black, Brown, Indigenous, and working-class parents. We have an opportunity to do a radical reset that can transform the spaces in which we teach and learn mathematics. We actually know what works and what needs to change. Yet we continue to find ways to repackage processes that rank, sort, and segregate children. The question is, what will it take for us to collectively dismantle the racist systems, beliefs, and practices in order to cultivate math joy and curiosity in our classrooms?
