University receives grant for teacher education

California State University, Stanislaus is one of eight CSU systems that will receive a portion of the $3 million grant from the S.D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation for the teacher education program.

The university will receive $230,000 from the grant to futher develop an innovative model for recruiting and educating teachers.

“These eight programs are taking the lead in addressing California’s need for innovation in teacher preparation to address the new standards and prepare world-class teachers,” Beverly Young, CSU Assistant Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, said in an article on the university website.

“Each has given serious thought to transforming the whole pipeline, from early recruitment through becoming credentialed, so that each stage is designed to ensure rigorous preparation of every new teacher.”

The grant will fund a CSU initiative called “Preparing a New Generation of Educators for California,” which trains future teachers on the new K-12 curriculum, which is based on Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards.

According to the university website, CSU Stanislaus educates nearly 70 percent of the teachers in the region.

The other schools receiving a portion of the grant are: CSU Channel Islands, Fresno State, Cal State Fullerton, Cal State Long Beach, Cal State Northridge, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and the CSU’s CalStateTEACH.
