OECD’s ‘Embedding values and attitudes in curriculum’ document

OECD’s 2021 document ‘Embedding values and attitudes in curriculum: Shaping a better future’ reaffirms values “as motivation for acquiring and using knowledge and skills” (p.11). That its focus is on embedding values in the (mathematics) curriculum that “shape shared futures built on the well-being of individuals, communities and the planet” (p. 19) exemplifies the two main threads of values research in mathematics education, summarised by what I had called ‘values through maths, maths through values’, thus distinguishing our project’s developmental work on the latter, complementing OECD’s emphasis on the former.
