EXTRA: Louisiana TeachNext program ...

Lauren Lastrapes writes:

I'm working with the Louisiana TeachNext program, a program that operates through Delgado and Nunez
community colleges and gives students interested in becoming teachers a chance to get an Associate's of Science in Teaching degree and begin the path toward teacher certification.

This is a new associate's degree program that was devised in order to ensure that community college students are able to have all of their education coursework transfer to a four-year college (currently community college students aren't always able to transfer their coursework to a four-year college and therefore often have to back-track and lose credits).

The program is meant to provide interested people with a flexible, cost-effective way to begin the process of becoming good, well-prepared teachers. This is something I believe we are in dire need of as the recovery process continues.

Please visit the web site, and pass the word. Thank you.
