New York District Seeking Funding To Create Two-Year Residency Program For Teachers.

The Glens Falls (NY) Post-Star (10/20, Goot) reports school officials in Cambridge, New York are seeking funding for “an initiative in which teaching candidates would spend two years in the classroom working under the supervision of veteran teachers.” Advocates of the proposal say teachers need more preparation before taking over a classroom and compare the program to a medical residency as a way to prepare education professionals. Cambridge has already expanded their student-teaching placements from eight to 16 weeks.
