Rishi Sunak

Rishi Sunak, the prime minister of the United Kingdom, wants to change the “anti-math” culture and mandate that students in England learn the subject until they are adults, while admitting on Monday that there aren’t enough instructors to meet the demands of the law as it stands.

According to Sunak, adults with inadequate arithmetic abilities are holding back the economy, and children without a strong background in math will fall behind in the job market. He claimed that one of the least numerate countries in the developed world was Britain because of a “anti-maths mindset.”
