The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) has awarded a 2014 Research Fellowship in Educator Preparation to William Paterson University of New Jersey in partnership with Kean University and Rowan University. The one-year fellowship will provide researchers $30,000 to study the persistence in urban classrooms of teachers prepared through varied certification pathways. Dr. Susan Polirstok, Dean of the College of Education, is the Principal Investigator at Kean University on the project.
