By learning Peano Axioms you can read their papers and learn some advanced math ed.

The Peano Axioms teach you the meaning of elementary math.  This gives you a language to discuss persistent fallacies or blocks that students have.

Engineers who want to do math teaching can learn the Peano Axioms as a bridge from their math know how to elementary math.  They can then read the Asmuth and Rips papers on teaching math induction to students to get into the math ed literature and way of thinking.

This gives them a unique selling point for being a math teacher.

Some people with math background go into teaching and can move up to helping other teachers who don’t have a good math background.  The Peano Axioms is a way to teach math teachers whose conceptual understanding is weak.
