Dori: Math racist in Seattle Schools according to ‘Math Ethnic Studies Framework’

 

Here are my favorite quotes from the Seattle Public School K-12 Math Ethnic Studies Framework:
  • Where does Power and Oppression show up in our math experiences?
    • Who holds power in a mathematical classroom?
    • Is there a place for power and authority in the math classroom?
    • Who gets to say if an answer is right?
    • What is the process for verifying the truth?
  • How is math manipulated to allow inequality and oppression to persist?
    • Who is doing the oppressing?
    • Who does the oppression protect?
    • Where is there an opportunity to examine systemic oppression?
    • Who does this oppression harm?
