Submission + - Specialist Math Teachers for UK Primary Schools

Coryoth writes: "After a Government review of mathematics education in the UK, it has been decided that every primary school will have a specialist mathematics teacher within five years. Specialist mathematics teachers for primary schools will be paid more and will be expected to work towards masters degrees during their career. The goal is to interject a higher degree of math expertise and awareness much earlier in children's education. A similar approach was taken as part of Finland's LUMA programme in 1996, which has since yielded positive results. If the UK programme is successful, can we expect other countries to adopt this approach?"
