When Systemic Interventions Get in the Way of Localized Mathematics Reform
Graven, Mellony
For the Learning of Mathematics, v36 n1 p8-13 2016
In this article, South Africa provides an "outlier" case study that illuminates the tensions that exist between interventions, aimed at tailoring initiatives to the vastly unequal contexts of schooling, and the systemic "one size fits all" interventions of the state. I draw on the experiences of two teachers involved in an in-service teacher intervention project, to argue that our current curriculum and systemic "support" fail to accommodate the extreme backlogs in learner knowledge.
