Here are more specifics.

The Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education is proud to provide in-state coordination for this exciting national initiative that is designed to both increase the supply of outstanding teachers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields and change how they are prepared to teach.

Georgia Partnership President Dr. Steve Dolinger commented on the organization's involvement: "The Georgia Partnership has long supported strategies around improving teacher effectiveness - including our gap analysis several years ago and our April 2014 Critical Issues Forum on teacher evaluation and compensation. 

"We are glad to serve as a partner in this effort with the Woodrow Wilson  Georgia Teaching Fellowship Program.  This will help improve the teacher training programs at five universities in partnership with several of their local school systems.

"Another goal is to produce more STEM teachers for our state.  Both of these goals are timely for Georgia.  We are proud to help coordinate these efforts over the next several years."

Support for the program is provided by the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation.
