Revolutionizing Teacher Prep


If we want to ensure our classrooms are filled with dedicated, diverse teachers we must think outside the box for how to structure teacher prep programs. Particularly for people of color who face disproportionate financial and logistical hurdles, it’s paramount to provide financial support, prioritize mental health resources, and explore innovative ways to give aspiring educators different pathways to credentialing.

In this session, leaders from three different teacher prep programs will speak to the ways they are finding success recruiting and retaining tomorrow’s teachers.
