So, if you (like me) you are interested in research related to mathematics teachers and/or mathematics teacher education, this would certainly be an issue to take a closer look at!
A large part of the articles in this issue are related to the international comparative study: “Mathematics Teaching in the 21st Century (MT21)”. This study, according to the editorial, is the first study that has a focus on “how teachers are trained and how they perform at the end of their education”.
