Can Teacher Residencies Help with Shortages?

Education Week, the national news organization for what's happening in Education published an article this week that attempted to answer this very question. Roneeta Guha, a researcher with the Learning Policy Institute found that the "most effective teacher residencies were developed by strong partnerships between districts and universities." Thanks to a five-year $4.3 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education, the University of New Hampshire will prepare and support 60 highly qualified elementary and secondary math and science teachers for rural, high-need New Hampshire schools beginning this summer. We invite you to learn more about the UNH-TRRE program.
