    I would split math in to numeracy and maths so numeracy would be:

    multiplication (long and times tables)
    division (long and short)
    addition
    subtraction

    and maths would all the other things like algebra,complex numbers and the like starting in year 3 along with numeracy you'd introduce some algebra and by year 6 all children must know up to their 10 times table (teach it by rote it just works).

    Make education more individualized so people can choose what they want to explore.
    Also have more minority representation in the creation of materials like textbooks. (minority perspective as well as majority perspective) but what can I say... history is written by the victors
