Are British schools doing it wrong?
Education secretary Liz Truss has called schools in the UK “stagnated” and said they should learn from Chinese teaching methods.
It comes as schools in China were named the most successful in the world whereas the UK ranked 26th.
Fifty British maths teachers have been to Shanghai to study their methods – with already improved results – according to Truss.
Education authorities in the UK are currently working on reforms to the curriculum and examination systems to encourage more students to study maths and science, she added.
