Join educators, parents, students, activists, and community members from around the country for a 3-day conference to explore the connections between math education and social justice. We will explore many questions, challenges, and opportunities to work toward social justice through math education. We invite you to share your thoughts, lesson plans, questions and to be a facilitator for a workshop, interest group, or presentation. Facilitators may choose to present on topics related to math and social justice including equity in education, literacy and social justice, and integrating social issues into the math classroom. Sessions need not be entirely polished presentations as we hope to share ideas in order to build together.
Goals of the conference
- Bring together educators, researchers, parents, activists, and students to collectively discuss social justice and math education
- Foster new and innovative partnerships and collaborations
- Create a space to share resources, lesson plans, best practices, and other classroom materials
- Develop structures for ongoing discussion and working groups about math and social justice
- Organize a national voice in the ongoing debate over math education reform
- Plan actions, advocacy, future meetings, etc.
