Research Discussion: Dr. Chuck Munter

From the Interpersonal to the Institutional: Investigating Sources of Inequity in Mathematics Education

Too much about schooling perpetuates, rather than reduces, social inequalities. And in terms of subject areas, mathematics may be one of the worst culprits. In this discussion, we will consider research on how inequity is produced in school mathematics at multiple levels, including through classroom interaction and through district policies, and reflect on ways we might confront those inequities. All are welcome, regardless of level of interest in mathematics.

Speaker(s) Information

Charles Munter is an assistant professor at the University of Missouri in the Department of Learning, Teaching, and Curriculum. He joined the Mizzou faculty in the Fall of 2016, after 8 years as a high school mathematics teacher, a Ph.D. in mathematics education at Vanderbilt University, and a previous faculty appointment at the University of Pittsburgh. This spring he is teaching a secondary math methods course (LTC 4581). In the fall he will be teaching a doctoral seminar on Research on Equity and Diversity in Mathematics Education.

His research focuses primarily on inservice, secondary teacher learning and district-level policy contexts, including foci on characterizing high-quality instruction, the institutional setting of teaching, and designing for equity. A current project is focused on investigating the problems of practice identified by district leaders and other stakeholders in Missouri school districts, across urban, suburban, and rural settings.
