Abstract
This discussion paper draws together a theoretical analysis of the potential of school mathematics to be either exploitative or empowering and the findings from a recent research project. It reports on how the participatory action research project impacted upon the thinking and classroom practice of a group of five secondary mathematics teachers. It considers the implications for transforming classroom practice in relation to teaching mathematics for social justice on a wider scale.
