Healing through Confianza: a conceptual framework for our mothers' mathematics
This conceptual framework weaves together healing informed mathematics (Kokka) with Parental Participation (Civil) and Power-Threat Meaning framework (O'Toole) to create a conceptual framework. The aim in this manuscript is to create a strong research theory for participatory action research in mathematics education co-constructed with parents. Connected in secondary and tertiary works, the concept at the center is confianza, trust. We must start in a place of trust for the hard and true healing of mathematics as we know it.
