ab: Summary: This chapter is devoted to political questions in mathematics
education. The practice of recognizing certain children as more gifted
than others and selecting them accordingly becomes inevitably a focus
of public attention, frequently giving rise to disagreements, finding
itself at the heart of political discussions, sometimes instigating
such discussions, and sometimes reflecting already existing conflicts.
Without attempting an exhaustive analysis, the author describes certain
episodes, aspects, and slogans of such political battles, while posing
some questions for further study.
