A London primary school has become the first to outsource maths teaching to India.
Pupils at Ashmount Primary in Islington who have fallen behind are given one-to-one tuition over the internet.
Pupils are given a headset and log on to a website where they interact with their tutor 4,000 miles away in India. The service, used by
11-year-olds, costs £12 an hour, compared with the £40 an hour a private tutor would cost in London.
I can just imagine.
