I am curious about what other states are doing that have received the NSF grants for their SSI's. At the regional in New Jersey in the fall I heard abou the New Jersey initiative which is entirely different than my state's initiative which we call VQUEST.
Are your projects state wide or by district? Do they involve the whole community or just the math and science communities? What kinds of professional development is provided for teachers? How do the teachers qualify?
Thanks. I look forward to the comments. --
