Political Conocimiento in Contemporary Times: Honoring LGBTQ+ Youth in Our Math Classrooms

Presented by Brandie E. Waid

CRT (critical race theory) bans, antitrans sports bills, and “don’t say gay” laws are being introduced in state legislatures across the country in record numbers. These legislative attacks have had a significant impact on the mental health of the LGBTQ+ and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) students, families, and teachers in our PK–12 schools. How does mathematics fit into this conversation, and what can we—as math teachers, teacher educators, math coaches, school administrators, and leaders of school districts and professional organizations—do to honor the brilliance of the LGBTQ+ youth, especially LGBTQ+ identified BIPOC youth, in our mathematics classes? In this session, you’ll learn this and more, gaining an understanding of, as Dr. Gutiérrez writes when speaking of political conocimiento, “how politics permeates everything we do.”
