Luis Cruz


2019 Keynote Speaker
Recognizing and Overcoming the Barriers to Ensuring ALL Students Learn Mathematics

The public school system we have inherited was never designed to ensure high levels of learning for ALL students. The critical thinking students develop as a result of engaging in meaningful mathematical learning experiences does not intentionally include students from certain low-income communities or students of color. To put it mathematically, equal does not equate to equitable.

Join Dr. Luis F. Cruz as he passionately challenges us to reflect on the historical purpose of our public school system and discover how to ensure high levels of learning for ALL students in our schools. As school leaders we need to first embrace the discomfort of the current reality in our school mathematics programs, and then act to change a process for learning mathematics so that it is designed to help each and every child learn.
