According to educators at the Greenville County school District, fewer young people are studying to become teachers and the school district hopes a new partnership will change that.
Superintendent Dr. Burke Royster will be joined by Dr. Keith Miller, President of Greenville Technical College, Dr. George J. Petersen, Founding Dean of the Clemson University College of Education and Mauldin High School Teacher Cadets to make an announcement Monday afternoon at 2:30.
From there the students could begin earning a degree from Clemson University.
Turner said she works with seniors at Mauldin HS who participate in a similar program already in existence.
She said the teacher cadet program allows the students to gain valuable, hands-on experience and insight into choosing teaching as a career.
