A must read for mathematics educators wishing to foster a non-oppressive learning environment.

In my quest for current research for my project, this journal article was given to me.  I recognize that all of us have negative amounts of time on our hands right now, but I do recommend making a free account, and downloading this article for a read in the future.

Miscalculations: Decolonizing and Anti-Oppressive Discourses in Indigenous Mathematics Education”   (Vol 40, No 3, 2017; http://journals.sfu.ca/cje/index.php/cje-rce/issue/view/115) ​ written by Stavros Stavrou and Dianne Miller, University of Sask.

Many topics that we have read and discussed in ETEC 521 are presented in this piece. It challenges the work of many researchers who have attempted to understand (close?) the comprehension gap between non-Indigenous and Indigenous Math learners. The gloves were off in this article!
