Institute for Economic Affairs on Mandating Maths Up to 18

The IEA’s Matthew Lesh says…

“Extending compulsory maths education is no silver bullet for economic growth. The Soviet Union was world-renowned for maths and science instruction but that failed to translate into a strong economy. Similarly, the UK has some of the top universities in the world yet has experienced stagnant growth for the last decade. Prosperity requires creating the right institutional environment for entrepreneurship, not dictating curriculums from the top.”
