Canadian Profs Claim STEM Promotes ‘Eurocentrism’ and ‘White Supremacy’

Led by University of Alberta professor Marc Higgins, the research editorial “Displacing Methodologies in STEM Education: Theory for Eco-Social Justice” argues that STEM education practices, called “methodologies,” reinforce a variety of social ills.
