Description: Founded in 1986 by activist teachers, Rethinking Schools is a nonprofit, independent publisher of educational materials that advocates the reform of elementary and secondary education, with a strong emphasis on issues of equity and social justice. Having begun as an effort to address problems such as basal readers, standardized testing, and textbook-dominated curriculum, it now balances classroom practice and educational theory. Its articles, written by and for teachers, parents, and students, also address key policy issues such as vouchers and marketplace-oriented reforms, funding equity, and school-to-work. In particular, read about or purchase the book edited by Eric (Rico) Gutstein and Bob Peterson entitled Rethinking Mathematics: Teaching Social Justice by the Numbers, the table of contents and introduction of which are available for downloading or reading online.
