It's not the algebra that's tripping up students — it's the teaching

The truth is that many math faculty are hired solely for their subject knowledge and not their teaching expertise. The results are classes that lack the cultural competence to make math relevant to students, who are instead made to feel dumb.
This problem goes much deeper than students of color not being able to pass intermediate algebra. To fully address the problem requires changes in teaching practices, insisting on unbiased, quality teaching, and reforming hiring practices to reflect the unique diversity of our students.
