Teachers College and Columbia Launch Columbia Urban Educators to Train Students to be NYC Public School Teachers

Columbia Urban Educators at Teachers College will give preparation and camaraderie for students to become outstanding educators. But what makes this program innovative is that it gives an incentive for undergraduates to consider teaching in public schools. And, rather than throw new teachers unprepared into classrooms, we provide on-going training and mentoring. The result will be better teachers who are more likely to be retained." - Anthony Marx, Political Science
