MCTM Response to Recent Events in Charlottesville
The Minnesota Council of Teachers of Mathematics, as an affiliate of National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, fully endorses this Response to Charlottesville by National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) President, Matt Larson, and President Elect Robert Berry. They state in part, “We encourage all educators to challenge systems of oppression that privilege some students while disadvantaging other students. We encourage all educators to create socially and emotionally safe spaces for each and every student. And we urge educators to create structures where each and every student can be fully engaged in our democratic society in constructive ways.” (Para. 3).
