Recently, a day-long seminar featuring Newark Mayor Cory Booker was exclusively organized for administrators of Newark Public Schools. The seminar was an opportunity for local administrators to interact with leading educators from Singapore and gain a deeper understanding of the concepts and principles of this style of thinking and learning.
“Singapore has been a top performer in mathematics on all international comparisons, and schools throughout the U.S. have been adopting Math in Focus to make it a reality here. This symposium is meant to give the administrators of Newark the opportunity to hear why and to experience how they can implement the concepts in their classrooms.”
