Laurie Rubel, a professor of mathematics at Brooklyn College, claims that “meritocracy” in mathematics classes is a “tool of whiteness.” In a recent academic article, she argued that although meritocracy is linked to hard work, it also “functions as a toll of whiteness.” According to Rubel, color-blindness can also be an issue for math teacher because “Teachers who claim color-blindness are refusing to acknowledge the impact of enduring racial stratification on students and their families. To fix this issue of “whiteness,” Rubel recommends that math teachers include more social justice into their lessons, yet still warns that “teaching for social justice” can also be a “tool of whiteness.” Makes perfect sense.
