Clapham, Andrew; Vickers, Rob – Oxford Review of Education, 2018
Mathematics education is a high-stakes indicator of success in 'über' performative systems. The search to address England's mathematics underperformance resulted in cross-national attraction toward, and policy borrowing of, 'teaching for mastery' from the high-performing education systems of Shanghai and Singapore. We argue that the cultural…
