Johns Hopkins School of Education Forms Partnership to Train Urban Educators

urban teachersThe Johns Hopkins University School of Education, ranked first in the nation by U.S. News & World Report, and Urban Teachers, one of the most rigorous alternative teacher certification programs in the United States, have formed a partnership to train new teachers for public schools using a clinical residency model as rigorous as the Johns Hopkins residency model for doctors. The program will begin in 2016.

“The clinical residency approach to training teachers used by the School of Education and Urban Teachers is similar to Johns Hopkins’ proven clinical model for preparing doctors,” said David Andrews, Dean of the Johns Hopkins School of Education. “By preparing new teachers with the same high standards expected for doctors, the partnership will produce some of the best new educators in the country.”

The Urban Teachers and Johns Hopkins partnership will offer a Master of Science in Education with a concentration in educational studies that prepares new teachers to succeed in low-income and minority schools. The degree will offer new teachers training in general and special education, equipping them to meet the needs of all learners.

Core Education, LLC is proud to have worked with Urban Teachers since 2010 in a consulting capacity.
