The National Mathematics Advisory Panel needs to be situated in its broader political context to more fully understand it. Who created it, for what purpose, and who will (and will not) benefit from it are key questions I address in this article. My argument is that the NMAP, as part of a larger initiative undertaken by the Bush Administration and US financial/corporate elites, serves capital’s efforts to shore up the US’s weakening economic global position and does not benefit the majority of the US people—particularly marginalized and excluded students of color and low-income students.
