Abstract

Ethnic studies is a growing movement for curricular and pedagogical practices that reclaim marginalized voices and histories and create spaces of healing for students of color; however, its application to mathematics education has been limited. In this essay, we provide a framework of five ethea of ethnic studies for mathematics education: identity, narratives, and agency; power and oppression; community and solidarity; resistance and liberation; and intersectionality and multiplicity. We describe key concepts and examples of the ethos of ethnic studies.
