Boston Teacher Prep Program Recognized for Excellence & Innovation

The Boston Teacher Residency (BTR) program, a school-based urban teacher preparation program, was named one of 15 finalists for Harvard’s Kennedy School’s Innovations in American Government award.

BTR exemplifies a promising model of teacher education run by districts, where teachers receive extensive pratical training along with rigorous coursework and the training is closely aligned with district needs. After a full-time 13 month program, graduates receive a Massachusett’s initial teacher license and a master’s degree in education from U Mass/Boston. Tuition for the program is forgiven if graduates teach in Boston public schools for three years.
