A Call to Action for Mathematics Leaders
It's TIME-Themes and Imperatives for Mathematics Education is a mathematics leadership framework that articulates a set of leadership imperatives and presents a systemic framework to convert our shared vision into a reality of consistently high levels of mathematics learning for all students. The framework summarizes the imperatives that constitute the call to action for successful implementation of the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) and high levels of student achievement.
This call to action provides the focused leadership strategies, resources, and insights necessary to significantly improve the productivity of the mathematics education system. Our mathematics leadership actions must:
- impact every student and every teacher in every classroom
- build the capacity of both people and systems
- follow the guiding mantras that this call to action is a joint effort and we can make a difference together
- recognize the systemic nature and interrelated components of the educational enterprise, and recognize that change of this magnitude takes time
