The San Francisco Teacher Residency is one of 38 new partners invited to join 100Kin10. Led by the Carnegie Corporation of New York and the Opportunity Foundation, 100Kin10 is a multi-sector partnership addressing the national imperative to train 100,000 science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) teachers by 2011.
The 38 new partners were accepted for having made innovative, measurable commitments to increasing the supply of excellent STEM teachers, hiring, developing, and retaining excellent STEM teachers, and building the 100Kin10 movement. They range from the American Federation of Teachers, TED-Ed, American Chemical Society, and Girl Scouts to Rider University and the San Francisco Teacher Residency, and are unified by a single, ambitious goal: to prepare all students with the high-quality STEM knowledge and skills to equip them for success in college and the workplace.
Organizations are accepted as partners following a rigorous vetting process conducted by the University of Chicago. Read more announcing the selection in the press release here.
