Description: This math-science program in Cambridge, MA has organized local communities to help make algebra available to all 7th and 8th grade students, regardless of their prior level of skill development or academic achievement. This paper examines how the developers of the project have called upon the traditions of the civil rights movement to assist communities in organizing a challenge to the ability model in which algebra is offered only to "gifted" eighth-graders.
