Teachers learn to use math as Trojan horse for social justice

This summer, middle school math teachers can learn how to incorporate social justice issues like racism and privilege into their classrooms.

“Teaching Social Justice through Secondary Mathematics” is a six-week online course designed by Teach for America and offered through EdX, which provides free online classes from top universities such as Harvard University, MIT, and Columbia University.
