Money to help increase number of math and science teachers

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) _ The U-S Department of Education is chipping in to help the University of Hawaii's College of Education with its Transition to Teaching program.

The department has awarded a two (m) million dollar grant in an effort to increase the number of qualified and licensed secondary math and science teachers in Hawaii.

The program is designed for mid-career professionals and recent college graduates who would like to make a career transition to become teachers in high-need schools.

Jocelyn Surla Banaria is program manager of the College of Education. She says that for the just-started school year, the Department of Education anticipates a need for about 100 secondary math and science teachers statewide.

The college offers a fast-track three-semester program for those with a bachelor's degree outside of education.
