A WhatWorksSC Award Candidate: FMU Center of Excellence To Prepare Teachers of Children of Poverty
Monday - December 02, 2013
The FMU Center of Excellence was established in 2004 to identify high-yield strategies for high-poverty schools and then to provide specialized training and outreach to districts, schools, and teachers. The Center’s research base is grounded in neuroscience and learning theory; school-based data shows that children of poverty are more likely to be retained, be labeled as ‘problem’ students, earn lower scores on standardized tests. Dr. Tammy Pawloski is the Center Director who joins us to share information about this nationally recognized program.
