Financially Sustainable Teacher Preparation

Teacher Prep

Since the Harvard convening in May, Bank Street College of Education initiated a project focused on making quality teacher preparation financially sustainable in the United States.

The goal is to develop a set of strategies for sustainably funding clinically rich teacher preparation, and to partner with the federal government or a small number of states or districts to significantly expand the number of teachers prepared through quality programs. With an eye on securing a dedicated funding stream for this work within 3-5 years, Bank Street authored the initial concept and subsequently engaged other organizations in the Transforming Teaching network to collaborate and provide feedback on this exciting work.

The group continues to welcome input: Click here to read and give feedback (via comments) on a concept paper about the project.
