Twenty-two new three-year grants through the Supporting Effective Educator Development (SEED) program will support teacher quality preparation programs. According to the Department’s press release, “In this year’s SEED competition, the Department directed funding to projects designed to support educator workforce through high-quality, comprehensive teacher preparation programs, including those with a strong track record of recruiting and placing underrepresented teacher candidates, and that include one year of high-quality clinical experiences.” Priority was also given to programs that foster inclusive and equitable environments to meet academic, social, and emotional needs.
