Governor, We write to you, to ask you to please reconsider taking away funding for the Texas Academy of Math and Science program at the University of North Texas. Listed on this petition, are former students of the academy. Among them are some of the best doctors, lawyers, engineers, entrepreneurs and scientists of their generation who would not be where they are now, without TAMS. TAMS is a unique environment which pushes gifted kids from all walks of life to live up to their potential. If you had a staffer interview these people, you would come to realize the immense impact it has made on not only them but the lives they have been fortunate enough to touch as well. TAMS is a tree that has just started to bear very promising fruit. Don

    The Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science (TAMS) allows high school aged Texas students, who are gifted in Math and Science to complete a curriculum of college coursework through the University of North Texas.
    "The establishment of this innovative program is from national concern among educators about anticipated shortages of students who would be sufficiently well prepared in mathematical and scientific problem solving."
    Funding should not be discontinued !!
