Shanghai teachers flown in for maths



Asian countries were top performers at maths in Pisa tests. Up to 60 Shanghai maths teachers are to be brought to England to raise standards, in an exchange arranged by the Department for Education.

They will provide master classes in 30 "maths hubs", which are planned as a network of centres of excellence.

The proposal to bring 60 English-speaking maths teachers from Shanghai is an attempt to learn from a city that has been the top performer in the OECD's Pisa tests.

The OECD says that children of poor families in Shanghai are on average better at maths than middle class children in the UK.
