Milwaukee Public Schools math and science teachers will receive additional training under a $2.4 million federal grant awarded to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
The National Science Foundation funding will cover training and pay for conferences and research money for 25 math and science teachers with master’s degrees across MPS high schools. The hope is the grant will improve the math and science curriculum at MPS. The five-year project will run through the summer of 2021.
“This effort will strengthen the professional capacity of high school mathematics and science teachers,” said Michael Steele, project leader and associate professor at UWM.
