Operationalizing Equity through School Reform in Mathematics.
Goodell, Joanne E. Tims; Parker, Lesley H.
The purpose of this paper is to explore the links between equity and reform in mathematics education. An overview of the research into problems associated with equity and mathematics education is presented, followed by an overview of the types of initiatives that have been employed to overcome the problems. A framework for viewing the problems and solutions is discussed followed by an operational definition of equity in the mathematics classroom. A review of two large-scale reform efforts in mathematics is presented and the data derived from monitoring these reform efforts forms the basis for this paper. A wide range of quantitative and qualitative data from the reform monitoring efforts is employed to examine the technical, cultural, political, and moral dimensions of enacting equity in reform. Contains 65 references. (Author/DDR)
