The Role of Mathematics Instruction in Building a Socially Just and Diverse Democracy

Abstract

"We recognize
that mathematics -- and the ways in which teachers
teach it -- is a key resource for building a socially just and diverse democracy. While other school subjects, too, offer resources for democratic education and social justice, mathematics makes its own unique
contributions to these goals. Instead of seeing
mathematics as culturally neutral, politically irrelevant, and mainly a matter of innate ability, we see it as a critical lever for social and educational progress (Moses & Cobb Jr., 2001) if taught in ways that make use of its special resources."
