Preparing New and Future Educators

Preparing Teachers to Make Lasting Impact

The Foundation seeks to ensure that students throughout California have access to teachers who are ready to support learning aligned with the Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.

Our approach

  • Supporting selected partnerships between California State University (CSU) teacher preparation programs and K–12 districts in their efforts to reform teacher preparation practices to align with new standards as well as district needs (New Generation of Educators Initiative).
  • Funding exemplary clinical preparation and data-sharing partnerships to increase alignment between teacher preparation and district needs.
  • Supporting advocates in their work to promote increased clinical preparation of teachers and data-sharing partnerships among teacher preparation providers and K–12 districts.
