Science and Mathematics Teacher Preparation

PIE is a partnership among several ISDs and the Department of Physics, Prairie View A&M University.

PIE is formed to reexamine the existing science and mathematics curriculum in Texas high schools, and compare with the curriculum in other countries especially in the competing countries. The objective is to make a recommendation on a curriculum in science and mathematics that is on par in the global arena so that every high school graduate from Texas is prepared to compete with similar graduates from across the world.

PIE is committed to empowering teachers to give every high school graduate a competitive edge.
