Carnegie Institution to help with math curricula

The Carnegie Institution for Science will start a fellowship in conjunction with Math for America to train 34 new math teachers that will be placed in DCPS and charter schools.
Maxine Singer, president emeritus of the Carnegie Institution, tells The (Washington) Examiner that many math teachers nationwide aren't proficient in specialties like algebra and geometry.

The first fellows will be recruited in fall 2008 from D.C., Virginia and Baltimore-area colleges and universities. The fellowship provides full tuition and stipends.
