from The Hechinger Report
Why don't American students really get math? Because their elementary school teachers don’t either, says Marc Tucker, president of the National Center on Education and the Economy, a policy institute that studies what America can learn from the world's best-performing education systems. Tucker describes a vicious cycle. "We are mainly recruiting teacher candidates from the bottom half of the kids who go to college," said Tucker.
