“Anti-Racist Mathematics Pedagogy & Practices”
Notice that the left-wing political aspect outweighs the actual subject. More of this is coming.

Kentucky school district to host year-long anti-racist mathematics training program for teachers
Jefferson County Public Schools in Louisville, Kentucky will host a year-long professional training program on anti-racist mathematics.
The program’s goal is to “eliminate curricular violence and innovate mathematics education” through “anti-bias, anti-racist, and racially equitable practices.”
Educators will engage in monthly sessions with Lateefah Id-Deen, assistant professor of mathematics education at Kennesaw State University, which focus on topics like white supremacy in mathematics, racial trauma in mathematics, and creating anti-racist lesson plans.
Id-Deen teaches mathematics methods courses in the Kennesaw State University Department of Elementary and Early Childhood Education, emphasizing racial equity and culturally relevant pedagogy. She is also a frequent speaker at educator conferences and for the local school district.
The Jefferson County Public Schools’ “Anti-Racist Mathematics Pedagogy & Practices” program begins in August 2021 and ends in May 2022. Along with the monthly 2-hour sessions, participants receive individual coaching and feedback.
Teachers accepted into the program are required to teach four social justice math lessons during the Spring 2022 semester. They are also expected to “plan for wider dissemination of their learning within their schools and the district.”
The Jefferson County Public Schools Diversity, Equity, and Poverty Department, which is supporting the program, also works to promote equity in other areas.
