A webinar featuring a panel of teacher prep professionals
In 2020–2021, Congress set aside billions for the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund.
To help educator preparation programs effectively allocate those funds, GoReact and AACTE put together a panel of teacher prep professionals. They’ll discuss how one state—Tennessee—has used ESSER funds to support a statewide “Grow Your Own Program” to address teacher shortages and diversify the profession.
In this free recorded webinar, you’ll learn:
