A Florida-based training program focused on science and math teachers is hoping to get a financial boost from the state. The program is looking to go statewide, but faces its own “fiscal cliff” when its startup grant runs out.
Science Math Masters is a teacher training partnership with 32 rural school districts and the University of Tampa. It’s funded by a three-year grant from the Florida Department of Education. Dr. Ed Moore, who heads the Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida, says he wants to make the training program permanent.
