Submission + - Paying Primary School Teachers to Learn Maths

Coryoth writes: "The UK government is planning to pay primary school teachers to get a Masters degree in mathematics. Teachers will be paid £1000 per year to attend week long university summer courses, with the goal of earning credits toward a Masters degree (which comes with a lump sum payment of £2500). This is part of a general overhaul of mathematics education in the UK based on a recent government report. The goal is to have at least one qualified specialist mathematics teacher in every primary school in the UK. Will this have a significant impact on how well UK students perform in mathematics, or is it a waste of money?"
