The government of Indiana has announced for an ambitious national program to improve the quality of teachers and the education schools in the state.

The program has been created by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation which will be funded by a $10.1 million grant from the Lilly Endowment. Under the program, an initial group of 80 new math and science teachers will earn master's degrees in education at Ball State University; Purdue University; Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis; and the University of Indianapolis. Eventually, the program would educate 400 Indiana teachers per year. After testing the program in Indiana, the Wilson Fellowship Foundation will expand to other Midwestern states and then nationwide. The goal of the program is to both improve teachers in schools with poor performance and to change the ways that teachers are educated in general, said Arthur Levine, president of the foundation.
