Important statements from OCTM
educators, one of our most important roles is helping others see
perspectives beyond their own. Racism has impacted the lives of African
Americans and Black people in our country for over 400 years. They
continue to suffer, along with people of color and other marginalized
people in our country as their voices and lives are oppressed by those
with privilege. Staying silent in our society when injustice occurs
promotes continued oppression. OCTM is committed to actively supporting,
including, and engaging educators representing all of the diversity in
our communities. We see you; we need you, and we are better with you. We
assume responsibility for working to welcome and elevate all and to
allow your important voices to be heard. We must work together to create
a future for our children where no voices are silenced and where all
lives are equally cherished and valued.
Stance on Ohio House Bill 616
OCTM endorses the position adopted by the Ohio Council for the Social Studies (OCSS) opposing Ohio House Bill 616. Although the OCSS position addresses social studies classes and educators specifically, OCTM believes that the same principles and important questions pertain to mathematics classes and educators. If this bill were to become law, the grave outcome would be the silencing of students, educators, and local boards of education.
