A Note from ICTM President Regarding Racism

As president of the Illinois Council of Teachers of Mathematics and as an educator, I can not tolerate racism or hate and must actively work to confront my own bias and privilege.  

ICTM's mission continues to be to provide a high quality and equitable mathematics education to all students. As educators we know that our role stretches beyond the content of mathematics. We don't just teach math, we teach students.

We can't be silent on issues of police brutality and violence towards people of color and specifically Black Communities. We appreciate the statement put out by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics that addresses the recent events. In addition, one of our affiliates, Nepantla Teachers Community, also has a statement that we encourage you to read.

As president, I encourage our organization to continue to have critical conversations around these issues so that we can truly fulfill our mission of an equitable mathematics education for all in Illinois.
