The Drexel/Philadelphia/Alabama/Chester-Upland project will select 375 mid-career changers and recent college graduates to be trained as highly qualified teachers through an online, streamlined teacher education program. In collaboration with the Math Forum at Drexel, the project implements new recruiting and retention strategies, incorporates rigorous pedagogy and content learning, custom designs streaming videos, and demands close interaction with high-need Local Educational Agencies (LEAs). The partnership will work with the Department of Education in both Pennsylvania and Alabama to facilitate systemic change in certification requirements in order to overcome barriers that discourage potential high quality teachers from entering the profession.
