The Educational Alliance is committed to encouraging degreed individuals to pursue non-traditional licensure. There are currently resources through the State Department of Education and Title II funds that support teachers as they work to increase the number of licensed teachers.
As a long-term solution, the districts are working to implement the Teacher Cadet program which will harness the desire of current students that aspire to become teachers. This program will provide a pathway for students to reach their career goals. The Teacher Cadet program and TEACH Pine Bluff will work to strengthen the academic climate of the school districts and therefore yield graduates that are contributing citizens.
