(NECN: Latoyia Edwards, Boston, Mass.) - A new report from Boston's Wheelock College Aspire Institute says students will have more success in math and science if they are exposed to the subjects as early as pre-kindergarten.

The Wheelock College's Aspire Institute report released today says, however, that many Pre-K and elementary school teachers lack strong content knowledge and instructional skill to teach the subjects.

The report recommends that those teachers receive specific
training in math and science. It also calls on colleges to elevate
the two subjects.

The study was commissioned by the John Adams Innovation
Institute of the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative.
