So that means some Ontario teachers are going back to school, taking courses upgrade their math skills. The province's education minister says there's $4 million set aside for subsidies.
 
It's part of a new initiative announced after 67 per cent of the Grade 3 students and even fewer Grade 6 students met the provincial standard for math.
 
While Liz Sandals wouldn't say students have done poorly on the tests, she stressed they could do better.

Sandals says the province also wants to explore how technology would help - both in class and at home - and also have teachers use a variety of in-class techniques to teach math.
