Priorities of the Partnership in Education program are 1) recruiting, preparing, and hiring classroom teachers in critical shortage areas of mathematics and science for high-need urban schools in the Kansas City school district; 2) providing high quality preparation based on state standards; and 3) providing intensive induction and mentoring support during the new teachers' first years of professional practice. The University of Kansas is committed to assuming the costs of curriculum delivery and the district is committed to funding the induction and mentoring program after federal support expires.
