College of Education holds informational sessions on WSU Dream Keepers
March 28 2017 at 4:30 PM
Detroit College Prep at Northwestern
In Michigan, these problems disproportionately affect black and brown children, particularly those living in urban areas, such as Detroit. Children living in poverty deserve the same access to well prepared, certified teachers as do middle-class children. This is a social justice issue with tremendous impact on children, families, communities, business, and the economy. Children living in poverty are more likely than are middle class children to: Be taught by uncertified, substitute teachers Be taught by a substitute who changes every 90 days or more frequently, providing little teaching consistency or relationship building Be "doubled-up" in classrooms due to substitute shortages, resulting in little teaching and mostly crow control happening during what should be instructional time Be perceived through a deficit lens and be achieving below grade level Be disciplined aggressively in a "school to prison pipeline model" Wayne State University is an institution that prepares teachers. We can do something to support children living in poverty. We feel a social, professional, ethical, and personal responsibility to act. WSU Dream Keepers will allow us to support children, teachers, schools, families, and communities. Dreamkeepers Urban Teacher Residency Program is for Detroit Public Schools Community District substitute teachers who are interested in earning teacher certification. This secondary cohort is designed for substitute teachers interested in earning a secondary certification in English, Math, or Sciences.  Participants in this residency program will work closely with instructional coaches, engage in peer cohort support, and train to be a certified teacher while on the job.
