Mathematicians must be constructively involved at the interface of mathematics and education at all levels. This statement holds true regardless of the modifier attached to "mathematics" or "mathematician": applied, statistical, pure, educator, researcher, academic, industrial, administrator, or any other. The purpose of this article is to discuss this constructive involvement, what it might mean in practice at various levels of education, and how the National Science Foundation (NSF) is working to facilitate it.
