The role of parents in supporting mathematics learning at home is often framed as supporting the development of academic skills learned at school, creating a power dynamic that positions the school as the site for superior knowledge. Further, many parents who are Black, Indigenous, and/or Latinx may experience racism or discrimination against their home cultures and languages. In our session, we will discuss how parents are intellectual resources for the teaching and learning of mathematics who can support the development of their children’s mathematical agency in and out of the mathematics classroom. We will look at how to restructure schools and parent partnerships to work together towards social justice in mathematics education and draw on examples from the MAPPS project and other research to illustrate potential considerations and pathways forward.
