Governor Matt Blunt has outlined a proposal to give Missouri students an edge in math, engineering, technology and science. The Governor’s so-called METS plan, outlined at stops in Kansas City, St. Joseph, St. Louis, and Cape Girardeau, is part of an education initiative to be detailed in his State of the State Address on Wednesday. The plan includes $2.9-Million to fund 100 classrooms in 100 schools with technology to support enhancing Missouri’s Instructional Networked Teaching Strategies (eMints). It provides teachers with lessons on how to incorporate technology into instruction and learning. The Governor is also recommending $1-Million to expand afterschool programs focusing on math and science programming and health programming. Blunt is also recommending $250,000 be spent to cover a portion of the test fee for all students who take Advanced Placement math and science exams.
