I'm genuinely conflicted, as the graduate of a college that does math VERY differently (seminar-based, start with Euclid, fundamentally dialectic), about stuff like this:
Is the language of equity/race merely kind of a weird but useful frame for criticisms folks from "alt" schools have been making for years of traditional math education? Or is it a really dangerous case of completely misguided principles?
This is not new. From the SNL episode aired 5/16/92:

"Instead of having 'answers' on a math test,
they should just call them 'impressions,'
and if you got a different 'impression' so what,
can’t we all be brothers?"
