The latest push to get more teachers into some Wisconsin classrooms comes with just a nine thousand-dollar price tag.
School Choice Wisconsin and Concordia University in West Allis on Monday announced the new Concordia Teaching and Learning Academy. It is a year-and-a-half long program designed to help people who already have bachelor’s degrees to become teachers at private, choice schools. The students will both take classes and have one-on-one mentorships with current teachers to learn what it takes to become an educator.
School Choice Wisconsin’s Nicholas Kelly says it’s a win-win for both new teachers, and the choice schools across the state who need teachers.
