Designing for Equity by Thinking in and about Mathematics (Debt-M)

NSF Awards: 1321216

2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12

Designing for Equity by Thinking in and about Mathematics is building a replicable professional learning model that addresses racially-based inequities in secondary mathematics education in the United States. Participants spend 2 years as a cohort building an understanding of the opportunity gaps and the inequitable teaching practices and being empowered to become change agents to disrupt these inequitable practices. 

Funded by the National Science Foundation Math-Science Program, DEbT-M is a partnership among Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC), Pittsburgh Public Schools, Iowa State University and University of Pittsburgh Center for Urban Education, with Duquesne University. We work with educators to disrupt elements of the current educational system that work to impede access to learning opportunities for students of color and improve mathematics teaching and learning at all district levels in ways that provide students of color with more equitable opportunities in mathematics and disrupt counterproductive narratives for all students and educators.
