Master Teacher Corps: Barack Obama Proposes $1 Billion Effort To Boost Students' Achievement In Math, Science

[pic - click to view]

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration unveiled plans Wednesday to create an elite corps of master teachers, a $1 billion effort to boost U.S. students' achievement in science, technology, engineering and math.

The program to reward high-performing teachers with salary stipends is part of a long-term effort by President Barack Obama to encourage education in high-demand areas that hold the key to future economic growth — and to close the achievement gap between American students and their international peers.

Teachers selected for the Master Teacher Corps will be paid an additional $20,000 a year and must commit to participate multiple years. The goal is to create a multiplier effect in which expert educators share their knowledge and skills with other teachers, improving the quality of education for all students.

Speaking at a rally for his re-election campaign in San Antonio on Tuesday, Obama framed his emphasis on expanded education funding as a point of contrast with Republican challenger Mitt Romney, whom he accused of prioritizing tax cuts for the wealthy over reinvestment in the nation.

"I'm running to make sure that America has the best education system on earth, from pre-K all the way to post-graduate," Obama said. "And that means hiring new teachers, especially in math and science."

The administration will make $100 million available immediately out of an existing fund to incentivize top-performing teachers. Over the longer term, the White House said it plans to launch the program with $1 billion included in Obama's budget request for fiscal year 2013.

But the House and Senate both voted down Obama's budget earlier in the year, making it far from certain that Obama will be able to get congressional approval to spend $1 billion on master teachers.

An aide to Rep. John Kline, R-Minn., chairman of the House Education and the Workforce Committee, noted that the federal government already has more than 80 teacher quality programs and said it would be foolish to pump money into programs that may be duplicative or unproductive.

"Republicans share the president's goal of getting better teachers in the classroom," said Kline spokeswoman Alexandra Sollberger. "However, we also value transparency and efficient use of taxpayer resources."

Education Secretary Arne Duncan said he expected the two parties to come together to support achievement in areas of high demand.

"This initiative has nothing to do with politics," Duncan said. "It's absolutely in our country's best long-term economic interest to do a much better job in this area."

A report released in February by the President's Council of Advisers on Science and Technology found that the U.S. must increase by 34 percent the number of students receiving degrees in science, math and related fields to keep up with economic demand.

The program will start with 2,500 teachers divided up among 50 different sites, the White House said, but will grow to include 10,000 teachers over the next four years. Obama, in partnership with a coalition of groups including the Carnegie Corporation of New York, has set a goal of producing 100,000 additional math and science teachers over the next 10 years.

A short term stipend for the best of the best teachers isn't going to fix sh*t.

Instead of giving bonuses out, they should restructure salaries for all teachers. Make it possible for the schools to actually pay a decent wage to all teachers. Not just the best of the best.

How this will actually increase student achievement on a national level is still to be debated.

This is actually good... School funding is cut enough... So $1b to throw to it is great. As long as it gets spent right.

And every kid should learn about math and science... Those were my favorite classes in school.

You're ignorant if you think kids should have a better education than they do. The American education system is a joke.

how about parents take time out of their lives to teach their own kids how to take school more seriously, instead of having to spend a billion more dollars on teachers!! I was a learning disabled kid when I was younger, my parents took time out of their lives to correct me... ended up getting a corporate job at age 19 with no college degree...

so many excuses in this country!!
^^ THIS!! I worked in a High School for a time there and i can tell you parents are HORRIBLE now.. They take NO RESPONSIBILITY for their children's education.. Parents are the main reason these kids are not learning not the school. Think about it... what do kids do when they get home? xbox.... ps3? no one is there making sure they get their homework done. If they misbehave in school the parents do not correct them at home so any punishment at school does not help. PARENTS NEED TO BE PARENTS NOT THEIR KIDS BEST FRIEND... that is what is wrong!

You don't need to upgrade sh*t!!! It's a waste of money. Maybe if the kids stopped wasting so much damn time on their precious cellphones and doing useless sh*t, they would learn more and be better educated. But no, Let's waste money on sh*t we don't need to waste money on, just like you've been doing your whole time in office, Obama. Only thing is these people are blinded by your skin color and won't realize it! NOBOMA!

Im waiting for the Revolution to happen!! once the european countries start collapsing everybody going to know they are fu*ked... I'm ready for this sh*t, 6 yrs ago Scientist predicted that sometime in the 2010's we will revolt.. didn't believe that sh*t until everyone bugged the fu*k out when Occupy WallStreet got big!!
Sitting on your a.ss waiting for some revolution ? You gotta be fu*king kidding me.

Occupy WallStreet, right, where are they now? Haven't heard sh*t about them in a looooong time. Could be due to media blackout but I have not even heard a squeak on any social media sites either. WE ARE THE 99% BRO


Don't get me wrong I like the overall idea and goal of the occupy movement but come on son, you can't put your faith in everyone else like that. They started strong and then black block came in and said fu*k you and started being the anarchists they are. And you have the news interviewing the stupidest people protesting making EVERYONE look fu*king retarded. You can have 100,000 people protesting and one or 2 sh*theads who start trouble, break sh*t, and get the entire movement fu*ked up. I was very surprised that the government never put a "plant" in the movement and have him shoot a cop or something, I predicted that sh*t from day 1 too.

Anyways, not to get all preachy but placing faith in the rest of the world to change the world is a mistake in my opinion. Humanity has proven time and time again we can't come together for sh*t....

Judging by the way that you spell, your incoherent thought processes, and your glaring lack of punctuation, I'd say that you're probably the last person who should be in the position of a.ssessing whether school is necessary or not.

on the NBA part, although I'm tempted to finally give up the sport the way I follow it religiously. after breaking bad ends it's a wrap for my cable subscription.
