Being Bold: San Francisco’s Detracking Story as a Path to Equity (Open to All)

Presented by Angela Torres and Lizzy Hull Barnes

What would a vision of an equitable mathematics system look like? We believe that in an equitable system, each student would have access to learning rigorous and challenging mathematics, and every student would experience mathematics classes as humanizing spaces where they can be their whole selves. Our current year, 2022–2023, is the ninth year that San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) has had a detracked mathematics course policy and pathways. Research, national trends, and SFUSD data prior to this policy show that tracking does not provide equitable opportunities for all students. Join us as we reflect on our detracking journey, from highlighting successes, including the professional supports of our educators, to some of our current challenges.
