On July 17, the Obama Administration announced a plan to create a national Science, Math, Technology, and Engineering (STEM) Master Teacher Corps. With $100m in start-up funding from the federal Teacher Incentive Fund (open until July 27), the program will begin in 50 locations across the country, each with 50 STEM educators. Pending Congressional approval of additional funding, the Administration believes the program can expand over the next four years to include 10,000 STEM teachers. STEM master teachers would make a multiyear commitment to the STEM master teacher corps and would receive an annual stipend.
