The goal of the
Aspiring to Educate program is to address both the shortage of teachers
in Pennsylvania and the lack of diversity in the educator pipeline.
is also the intent of the program to equip those teachers in the
pipeline, and current in-service teachers, with the knowledge, tools,
and supports needed to be culturally responsive educators. With the
support of private, federal, state, and institutional resources, it is
also the goal of the program to alleviate the financial burden of
participants enrolled in the program.
Aspiring to Educate will work with school districts in Pennsylvania to
ensure participants are hired upon the completion of the program.
