Please say that it is not the nice table in the Board room. On behalf of mathematics educators, I apologize.

I find it very interesting to peek behind the professional curtain to see how things work. Again, I am very amazed/impressed/overwhelmed with how much work goes into producing NCTM's Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, from the editors to the reviewers, etc.

These are three of my role models. Johnny appointed me to my first NCTM committee, I was awed by Lee when I met him for the first time, and asked me questions that moved my thinking forward. All are models of excellence.

Excellent idea. I think we could work together with others to craft a response.

Tonight I talked mathematics education with a group of 8 Black men from South Africa, Malawi, and Nigeria. These Brothers are brilliant and I am honored to be among them.

I believe that research showed strong evidence for numbers and numeracy but I am not certain if it true for other areas in mathematics like geometry and statistics.

When learners are asked to explain in English a concept for which there is no word in their home language they are disadvantaged. The research presented showed that learners understood concepts but could not use language for the concepts.

I think the point the speaker was trying to make was that there are concepts in mathematics that are understood in isiZulu and isiXhosa yet there is no word for it. For example symmetry, there is no word for symmetry but there are gestures and representations for symmetry.

Agree. Is school mathematics advantaged by English?

Further, assimilation is a form of colonization. Is language used to colonized people? I would argue that English is the states used as a form for colonizing people.
