The National Science Foundation reports teacher recruitment has reached crisis lows in some areas of the country. The Foundation is helping fight that problem with its two-million dollar grant to the University of Missouri-Columbia. The Director of MU’s Science Education Program, Sandra Abell, says the grant will help the university develop much-needed teacher certification programs for individuals with math and science degrees, but without a degree in education. Researchers will use the new grant to study different groups of 90 individuals each, to determine how those individuals develop their knowledge of teaching.
