The U.S. Department of Education is funding research in Canadian schools on which system for teaching math works better, the discovery based Ontario curriculum or the JUMP program which is more of a hybrid but is also more structured. The Ontario Ministry of Education supports the idea probably because they don't have to pay for it. The U.S. is using Canada as a testing ground now I guess, thanks for the money.

I like this idea and I assume the JUMP program will win out just from personal experience with the Ontario curriculum. What I want to know is what do you think about your government using funds to fund educational research here in my country and province instead of your own.
