The article reports on a University of Texas-El Paso program addressing the needs of area schools. Funded in part by a U.S. Department of Education grant and begun in 2006, the program builds partnerships between community organizations, public schools, and colleges within the university. It recruits and prepares teachers in high-need areas such as bilingual and special education, mathematics, and science. Support continues for three years after graduation, to encourage teacher retention.
