Rethinking Mathematics Education

from a

Critical Pedagogy Perspective



Critical pedagogy "challenges educators to recognize, engage, and critique (so as to transform) any existing undemocratic social practices and institutional structures that produce and sustain inequalities and oppressive social identities and relations.... [it] is primarily concerned with the kinds of education theories and practices that encourage both students and teachers to develop an understanding of the interconnecting relationship among ideology, power and culture."
