Steve Kelley Speaking to Fox 9 on new Master STEM Teachers Program
Center Director Steve Kelley talked with a Fox 9 reporter about Obama's new plan for bonuses for Master STEM teachers.

Kelley explained that this was just one step to improving STEM education in the U.S. and that is was a reasonable mechanism for keeping STEM teacher that might be drawn to the private sector.
