Math scores in the province just aren't adding up.
As the next round of standardized testing for Grade 3 and 6 students begins, the three provincial party leaders claim they know how to make things better.
Between 2010 and 2013, only 52 per cent of students met the provincial standard of a B grade (75 per cent).
Premier Kathleen Wynne tries to make things rosy, not focusing on math alone. She says 71 per cent of students have achieved "high provincial standards" in reading, writing and math.
Her campaign says they will continue to review the math curriculum, provide better help for struggling students, and help teachers specialize in math - all to improve grades.
Tory leader Tim Hudak agrees with that last point. He says he would also bring in a new test for science in Grade 8.
Hudak stresses many jobs in the future will rely on strong knowledge of math and science.
As for the NDP, leader Andrea Horwath would only say she'd work with teachers to figure out what to do. Horwath says she wouldn't pretend to have all the answers.
