  1. Hi Mike,

    Thanks for the post. On a related note, I thought you might be interested in Advocates of Urban Teacher Residency, the Facebook group I launched in 2008 to raise awareness about the Urban Teacher Residency model of teacher preparation, which I believe is key to ensuring low-income communities of color the highly effective, well prepared teachers they need and deserve. You don't need a Facebook account to access its resources. If you have a Facebook account, please join and help spread the word.
