WHY SCHOOLS ARE FAILING TO TEACH
An Analytical Overview of the Education System
In Who Cares about Maths, Anyway?, Dr Majeda Awawdeh, PhD addresses the top issues with Australia’s current education system in her honest, analytical overview. Over the course of the book, teachers, students and parents are given the opportunity to explore the deep-seated problems of their current school system, including a lack of teacher training and development, one-size-fits-all curricula and unfocused government funding.
Along with this insightful analysis, Dr Awawdeh introduces a long-term vision that can improve the system for all involved, resulting in the progression of student success and higher ranking worldwide. Individuals looking for in-depth research in the area of the Australian education system will find her book a valuable resource in their quest to solve the problems today’s students face.
Dr Majeda Awawdeh, PhD is a passionate mathematics teacher who believes the Australian education system can be one of the best in the world, but a significant change in mindset by all stakeholders is necessary to achieve this.
As a frustrated high school mathematics teacher, she exited the system, and based on her doctoral research in primary school mathematics education and Cognitive Load Theory, founded an elite, research-based learning centre that teaches mathematics and English.
While running her centre, she met with many unsatisfied parents who sought her professional services to support their children’s education. She decided to write this book to help parents, students and teachers voice their concerns about Australia’s education system.
