Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
we have a school system that values maths and science and uses competence in these fields to select the best students - so good students study maths quite intensively, and that creates a larger pool from which those that will actually remain in the field, and continue to study and teach math, can emerge in larger (and better) numbers...
