SHORELINE - The market demand for employees with a solid foundation in math and science remains high in the state of Washington.
A year ago Gov. Chris Gregoire announced the Math and Science Initiative to help Washington state math and science teachers develop better teaching techniques to improve student progress in this area. The initiative was developed to respond to the falling Washington Assessment of Student Learning (WASL) test scores in math. The initiative supports the recruitment of more teachers and encourages additional teacher training and hands-on learning opportunities for students.
“The best way to grow our economy and secure a bright future for our students is to make comprehensive, smart, responsible and accountable investments in math and science now,” said Gregoire when the initiative announcement was made.
All community colleges, particularly Shoreline Community College, support the economic development of our communities and our state through educational and training programs for its citizens. There are a number of critical programs underway at the College.
