PA Universities To Create STEM Educator Programs

Three Pennsylvania universities have been chosen to take part in a fellowship program to develop the next generation of teachers in the STEM fields. The Woodrow Wilson Foundation has chosen the University of Pennsylvania, along with Duquesne and West Chester Universities to create STEM-related Master's Degree Programs. Governor Tom Wolf says the state will benefit significantly. Under the program each school can enroll 12 fellows, who will receive 32 thousand dollars a year to teach at an urban or rural school for at least 3 years.
