According to Torres (1996), it is paradoxical that the global crusade to universalize basic education and to improve its quality coincided “with a notorious and global deterioration of teaching and of teachers’ conditions,” which in turn led to a “massive exodus of qualified and experienced teachers” (p. 14). It should not be imagined, however, that the quality-of-teaching factor was the only impediment to the achievement of basic mathematics for all. According to Schmidt et al. (2010–2011), the relatively poor mean scores of US students on the International Education Association’s SIMS (Second International Mathematics Study) and TIMSS tests resulted not only from low-standard intended and implemented curricula, but also from other factors such as poverty, housing, and access to curriculum materials.

300) Until 1900, most people who studied mathematics did so mainly in primary, or elementary, schools.

It was inevitable that the question of what mathematics was most needed in such programs would be raised.
