MISSION

Our mission is to create a space for mathematics educators to develop critical perspectives by forming a community that can support and push each other toward equitable and just practices. We support this work by developing and exploring teachers’ own identities in the context of their race, gender, and class.  Our goal is to develop teacher leaders who will advocate for students who are traditionally marginalized.

NTC SOCIAL JUSTICE MATHEMATICS EDUCATION DEFINITION

Social justice mathematics education aims to create a humanizing, student-centered environment that values everyone’s knowledge, experiences, and voice. To do this we must deconstruct current avenues that facilitate or restrict students’ access to mathematics in their lives. We must challenge what is considered “valuable” or “important” in mathematics. Social justice mathematics educators provide spaces that recognize and critically analyze these tensions as ways for their students to reject internalized oppression, and reclaim their power to transform spaces.
