Louisiana college sought to host teacher training consortium
BATON ROUGE- Louisiana's education department is looking for a college in the state willing to be the home base for a teacher training initiative.
The education department released its application for higher education institutions to apply to house the Louisiana Educator Research Consortium for a five-year period.
The college that hosts the consortium will organize research, convene experts from around the state to do research, seek grant financing and work on teacher preparation policy. The college will receive $50,000 in start-up funds to begin the consortium's work.
Superintendent of Education John White says the consortium's research and work will culminate with recommendations on how to better prepare educators for the classroom.
The application deadline is Nov. 17. The college host will be chosen by a committee representing K-12 and higher education agencies.
