Secretary Cardona on the U. S. Department of Education's Commitment to Investing in Teachers

Secretary Cardona on the U. S. Department of Education’s Commitment to Investing in Teachers

Secretary Cardona has laid out a list of strategies to address teacher shortages and to recruit, develop, and retain highly qualified teachers in the coming months and years.

  • Investing in a strong and diverse teacher pipeline, including increasing access to affordable, comprehensive, evidence-based preparation programs, such as teacher residencies, Grow Your Own programs, including those that begin in high school, and apprenticeship programs
  • Supporting teachers in earning initial or additional certification in high-demand areas such as special education and bilingual education or advanced certifications to better meet the needs of their students
  • Helping teachers pay off their student loans, including through loan forgiveness and service scholarship programs
  • Supporting teachers by providing them and students with the resources they need to succeed, including mentoring for early career teachers, high-quality curricular materials, and providing students with access to guidance counselors, social workers, nurses, mental health professionals, and other specialists
  • Creating opportunities for teacher advancement and leadership, including participating in distributive leadership models, and serving as instructional coaches and mentors.
