Here is a flexible approach to teacher training offering stackable credentials through the community college.  The idea is to graduate a diverse group of new teachers with roots in underserved communities hopefully making a big difference in student success rates at neighborhood schools in low income areas.  The students in the teacher training programs graduate with little college debt and advanced certifications and a bachelor’s degree.  

This fall, Highline College will become one of four state community colleges to offer students the opportunity to earn a teaching certificate — and because Highline’s enrollment is so diverse, the college’s leaders hope it could help increase the number of teachers of color in neighboring schools.
