Texas Instruments Foundation donates $3 million in grants for teachers
Anyone who has grown up using a TI-83 graphing calculator for their schoolwork is already likely aware of Texas Instruments’ connection to the academic world.
However, their contributions go well beyond their calculators, as the technology company has announced $3 million in grants to train middle and junior high school teachers in advanced math and science to increase graduation rates.
The funding will be split in half and given to two programs. Laying the Foundation will receive $1.5 million for "advanced training" of 10 current teacher in the Dallas, Garland and Richardson school districts in Texas to help improve teaching methods for AP-level coursework.
