Teachers Walk the Halls of Power

| 1 Comment

Math and science teachers shaping federal education policy? It's happening through the Einstein fellowship program, which I wrote about this week.

The program allows K-12 educators in math- and science related fields to come to Washington, D.C., for one-year stints, where they work in Capitol Hill offices or in federal agencies. Most of them go back to the classroom. Some of them stay, like Steve Robinson, who worked as a fellow for former Sen. Barack Obama and now serves as a math and science adviser in his administration.
