Murray State is one of three Kentucky universities to receive federal funds aimed at improving preschool through twelfth grade (P-12) educator quality. 

The Council on Postsecondary Education awards MSU $110,000 dollars for “developing critical thinking skills using science and engineering practices.” Funding will provide professional development for middle school math and science teachers from 15 regional school districts with the goal of developing standards-based units and lessons.

The CPE awarded a total of more than $400,000 dollars for improving P-12 quality. Other schools receiving funds are the University of Kentucky and Morehead State University.
