Math is one of those subjects that makes some students smile and others groan. Regardless of our attitude toward math, it is a very important subject to learn. It goes beyond being proficient at test-taking. Math is a subject that is used directly and indirectly the rest of our lives. Mind Research Institute claims that the study of mathematics produces citizens that can think creatively and critically, no matter whether they choose a career in engineering or in the culinary arts. Everyone benefits from a mathematical education.
Math Teacher Shortages
Unfortunately, math teachers are in short supply. Evidence shows that teacher shortages are caused by factors such as:
- declines in enrollments for teacher prep classes
- school districts reinstating classes that were cut during the Great Recession
- increases in student enrollments
- a high number of teachers are quitting before retirement age
The same study also notes that math and science teachers tend to leave teaching or move to a different school more often than teachers of humanities or general elementary.
Poor Math Teachers Can Ruin an Education
Math is a cumulative subject, meaning each year’s material depends on what you learned the year before. With so many good math teachers leaving or moving around, what are the chances that you are going to get at least one poor math teacher somewhere along the way? Pretty high. And one poor math teacher can derail an entire math education.
