Newark Public Schools has plans to launch a new curriculum that will prepare students for a career in teaching.
Superintendent Roger Leon says The Teachers Academy is partnering with two respected institutions to help their plans unfold.
“Montclair State University will be the higher education partner, and the American Federation of Teachers will be the professional organization partnering.”
Aspiring student teachers will pair up with professional educators that offer support. The High Schoolers gain experience teaching elementary grade classes.
