New Teacher Program at UVA

The University of Virginia is among four institutions chosen for a new program to encourage top graduates to pursue teaching careers in high-need classrooms.

Stanford University, the University of Washington and the University of Pennsylvania also were selected Wednesday for the Leonore Annenberg National Teaching Fellowship, funded by grants of $5 million from the Annenberg Foundation and $1 million from the Carnegie Corp.

Over three years, the program will provide a $30,000 stipend and one year of graduate education to 100 outstanding recent college graduates and career-changers who agree to work for three years in urban and rural secondary schools serving high proportions of disadvantaged students. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion.
