What Mathematics Education Might Learn from the Work of Well-Respected African American Mathematics Teachers in Urban Schools

by Daniel Chazan, Andrew Brantlinger, Lawrence M. Clark & Ann R. Edwards
This article outlines the research questions that organize the two cases that are at the heart of this special issue, introduces the theoretical perspectives behind the project from which the cases are drawn, and describes the selection procedures for the data corpus from which the articles in the issue were developed. It also explains the interrelationships among the six pieces in the issue. In doing so, the article problematizes contemporary discourse about urban education and presents an argument for what might be learned from the practices of well-respected African American teachers of high school mathematics in large, nonselective urban schools.
