With Numeracy for All: Urban Schools and the Reform of Mathematics Education.
Robinson, Sharon P.
Urban Education, v30 n4 p379-94 Jan 1996
Advocates that mathematics education reform in urban schools cannot happen without socioeconomic efforts to lessen poverty in inner cities and protect urban America's youth. The paper argues that the most successful reform initiatives will be holistic in nature and that the covert racism and ethnocentrism in educational materials that marginalizes, bores, and disillusions poor or minority students must end.
