Abstract [en]

The mathematics initiative is a government initiative to develop mathematics teaching in order to improve students’ achievement in mathematics. In an application procedure, a municipality can suggest one or more development projects and get financial support from the Swedish National Agency of Education. About half of the municipalities that participate are successful. In this paper, I will argue that municipalities that perform at an intermediate level or above are more likely to submit a competitive project application than low-performing municipalities
