Minority Teacher Recruitment (MTR)
As a result of the RESC MTR Alliance’s research and program expansion, the following program components have been implemented to assist Connecticut’s school districts to develop, recruit, hire, and retain a diverse teaching and administrative staff:
Academic, financial, emotional support and professional development opportunities that promote an increase in the number of minority teacher graduates from all alternate route to certification programs in Connecticut
Pathways to Teaching: Grow your own career development programs that focus on the recruitment and training of minority high school students interested in becoming teachers in Connecticut
Academic and financial support provided to minority candidates studying to take the Praxis I and Praxis II examinations
Development of an MTR page on the RESC Alliance Web site: https//www.rescalliance.org. The site provides information on statewide efforts to eliminate the educational achievement gap between minority students and their non-minority peers
