Speaking of Schools

45 Years of the ESEA, Biology Merit Exam and Verizon Thinkfinity


Monday - April 19, 2010


For a number of years, Clemson University's SC Life program funded through a grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute has sponsored the Biology Merit Exam to recognize and promote outstanding achievement in the biological sciences among middle and high school students in South Carolina. The project also sponsors 200 students from 8-9 downstate schools with low-income, large minority populations, enabling them to participate in this oppoprtunity. This week, we'll review the recently-held event and learn more about what's happening in undergraduate life sciences at Clemson. Also on the podcast, as reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act looms before Congress, the Vice President of the National Education Association (NEA), the largest professional organization representing 3.2 million education professionals, calls to get back to the promise first avowed 45 years go by then-President Lyndon Johnson. We'll learn about the Department of Education's Office of eLearning's grant from the Verizon Foundation to offer new 21st century learning opportunities for educators and students statewide.
