AmeriCorps National Fixed Amount Grants FY 2011 (New)
Pathways will develop effective teaching teams composed of accomplished teachers and AmeriCorps members in teaching residency programs to serve in high-need schools. Student achievement will steadily improve as these pathways into education multiply the number of AmeriCorps members with extensive high-quality classroom experience in high-need schools, formal pedagogical training and a commitment to teach. At scale, Pathways will promote systemic change in America's schools that will help close the achievement gap, accelerate learning and be a model for schools nationwide.
