Vermont Teachers Return to Math Class
Determined to raise the mathematics skills of elementary school students, Vermont state education officials launched the Vermont Mathematics Initiative three years ago. Elementary teachers learn algebra, geometry, problem solving, and calculus so they can better understand and explain math to their students. Included: Lessons from the Vermont Mathematics Initiative
Algebra, trigonometry, and calculus are not topics often associated with elementary school teachers. Vermont education officials, however, calculate that a professional development program in mathematics for elementary teachers will add up to better math comprehension for them and better math skills for their students. Called the Vermont Math Initiative (VMI), teachers in the three-year program learn higher-level math in a way they can understand and then take that increased understanding to their classrooms. At the end of the program, teachers receive a master's degree in education with a specialty in K-6 mathematics education. VMI's goal is to prepare 300 math teachers with advanced degrees by 2005; those teachers will then instruct other teachers and help shape mathematics instruction in their schools. Currently, 105 teachers from 76 schools are enrolled in the program, which began in 1999. Vermont has about 3,200 elementary school teachers in 350 K-5 or K-6 elementary schools.

STATE NEWS... CHARTER SCHOOL STUDY COMMITTEE: NO SURPRISES The state's Charter School Study Committee will most likely issue its negative recommendation today or in the near future, telling the legislature that Vermont doesn't need charter schools. The make-up of the committee foreshadowed its outcome. Of its 10 members, at least five were predisposed against school choice in general. AND SO IT BEGINS: LEGISLATIVE OUTLOOK Because this is an election year, political posturing and not substantive education reform might be the likely outcome of this year's session. Nonetheless, school choice could be on the agenda as choice advocates under the Dome struggle to push something through after a frustrating session last year, where the only choice initiative was the ill-fated charter school study committee.
