The Council on Postsecondary Education is granting four universities, including Murray State, $839,000 to improve teacher quality.
Murray State is receiving $99,000 for a partnership program with Madisonville Community College, the University of Kentucky and the Kentucky Academy of Technology Education. The funds will go to help show science and math teachers how simulations and interdisciplinary problem solving can improve their work with accelerated students. The program also involves six school districts.
This year the CPE grants focused on programs assisting teachers with students in need of accelerated learning. Other institutions getting funds are the University of Kentucky, Northern Kentucky University and Morehead State University.
