Hintz, Allison; Tyson, Kersti; English, Andrea R. – Democracy & Education, 2018
This response to Crystal Kalinec-Craig's article on the Rights of the Learner (RotL) aims to take up and build on the author's ideas about how the RotL framework can promote equitable mathematics teaching and learning. Specifically, this response examines how "listening" is implied in the work of teachers who support young mathematicians…

Kazemi, Elham – Democracy & Education, 2018
In this response to Kalenic-Craig's (2017) article, "The Rights of the Learner: A Framework For Promoting Equity through Dynamic Formative Assessment," I consider what implications the RotL framework has for the work that teachers and students must do in learning environments where these rights flourish. The RoTL emphasizes student…

Lipman, Pauline – Democracy & Education, 2018
This response discusses the complexity of racial segregation in U.S. cities today and an emerging education movement for equity and racial justice. Racial segregation has been and continues to be a potent, and contested, strategy of containment, subordination, and exploitation, but African Americans have also, out of necessity, turned racial…

Martin, Lori Latrice; Varner, Kenneth J. – Democracy & Education, 2017
Since the 1930s, federal housing policies and individual practices increased the spatial separation of whites and blacks. Practices such as redlining, restrictive covenants, and discrimination in the rental and sale of housing not only led to residential segregation by race but also continue to shape Whiteness and frame narratives about what…

Kalinec-Craig, Crystal A. – Democracy & Education, 2017
An elementary mathematics teacher once argued that she and her students held four Rights of the Learner in the classroom: (1) the right to be confused; (2) the right to claim a mistake; (3) the right to speak, listen and be heard; and (4) the right to write, do, and represent only what makes sense. Written as an emerging framework to promote…

Griffin, Linda B.; Watson, Dyan; Liggett, Tonda – Democracy & Education, 2016
Student teaching supervisors can play an integral role in teacher candidates' ability to understand and enact culturally responsive pedagogy (CRP). However, supervisors may lack the awareness, knowledge, skill, or willingness to serve as culturally responsive supervisors. This paper reports the findings from a qualitative study to find out how…

Bright, Anita – Democracy & Education, 2015
In this response, I applaud the work initiated in this research and underscore some of the key reasons I find it so valuable. Building from this, I also issue a call to the greater mathematics education community--particularly the large mathematics professional organizations--to consider the ways their organizations have conceptualized and framed…

Holowchak, M. Andrew – Democracy & Education, 2014
This essay is a reply to James Carpenter's "Thomas Jefferson and the Ideology of Democratic Schooling." In it, I argue that there is an apophatic strain in the essay that calls into question the motivation for the undertaking.

Lee, Sharon E. – Democracy & Education, 2013
According to the United Nations, education is a right to which all human beings are entitled. Since 2000, the UN has been promoting the Millennium Development Goal to achieve free universal primary education for all, regardless of gender, by 2015. If the UN is correct to suggest that education is both a human right in itself and an indispensable…

Weilbacher, Gary – Democracy & Education, 2012
The article "There Is No Culturally Responsive Teaching Spoken Here: A Critical Race Perspective" by Cleveland Hayes and Brenda C. Juarez suggests that the current focus on meeting standards incorporates limited thoughtful discussions related to complex notions of diversity. Our response suggests a strong link between standardization and White…

Noddings, Nel – Democracy & Education, 2011
There is a widespread movement today to prepare all students for college, and it is promoted in the name of democracy. I argue here that such a move actually puts our democracy at risk by forcing students into programs that do not interest them and depriving them of courses at which they might succeed. We risk losing the vision of democracy that…

Glass, Ronald David; Nygreen, Kysa – Democracy & Education, 2011
We critique the "college for all" discourse by unveiling its relationship to the politics of education, the broader economic and political contexts, and the class and race structures embedded in society and schooling, including higher education. We analyze the current and future labor markets to demonstrate the ways that the "college for all"…

Gutierrez, Rochelle – Democracy & Education, 2009
Rather than delineating a list of practices that are important for ensuring that mathematics prepares students for a more democratic citizenship, the author has outlined in this article three tensions in teaching that she argues are important in developing an equity stance in mathematics education. This focus on a "stance" suggests that the kinds…

Duffy, John W. – Democracy & Education, 2008
Eminent African American historian Carter G. Woodson in his book "The Miseducation of the Negro," published a generation before the "Brown v. Board of Education" decision, concerned himself not with the racial composition of classrooms and schools, but with the curricula taught both in the schools and the larger culture. Certainly Woodson…
