Noyce scholars strive to make a difference in high-needs schools

Posted on August 23, 2011

Dana Center director Uri Treisman was one of several to speak at the 2011 meeting of the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program. The Noyce program, funded by NSF, seeks to improve K-12 education by focusing on improving teacher quality. Specifically, the program encourages talented undergraduate math and science majors to become K-12 math and science teachers. The speakers were honest about the challenges facing teachers today, but, as Uri said, "Even on a crappy day, you can do something wonderful for students."
