Perlmutter Watch 6-9-09

In a press release dated today, Rep. Perlmutter’s office announced that “the Community College Of Aurora was awarded $149,909.00 from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The grant, which goes into effect August 1, 2009, will fund training and support for 13 faculty members at the Community College Of Aurora to implement a Geographic Information System module in their classroom.”

I don’t understand why faculty at CCA need to learn how to use GIS in their classrooms or why Perlmutter is announcing the grant.  I seriously doubt that he or his staff had anything to do with it.  People at the college would have submitted a proposal to get the money.
