ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Education experts say American schools need to do a better job of teaching math.

Dougherty County teachers are learning how to do that this weekend.

The school system kicked off its first math conference Friday afternoon. Teachers often travel to training conferences.

There's no money for that now, so the system set up its own.

"We said we couldn't afford for staff development and professional learning decrease in our district," said Dr. Sonia King, Secondary Math Supervisor.

"It's important for us as math teachers to get together and see what's working in other schools," said Anwar Sadler, 5th Grade Math Teacher.

The conference continues all day tomorrow and includes various training sessions for math teachers in grades three through eight.
