CMU to Offer Credit to High Schoolers Looking to Become Teachers

WNEM (Saginaw, Mich.) (02/19/14)

A new articulation agreement between Central Michigan University (CMU) and the Michigan Department of Education's (MDE) Office of Career and Technical Education (CTE), signed by CMU Provost Michael Gealt and State Superintendent Michael Flanagan, aims to encourage high school students to become teachers. Under the agreement, high school students who complete the MDE-CTE state-approved teacher education career and technical education programs will receive credit for CMU's introduction to teaching course. Flanagan said, "This is an exciting opportunity for students across Michigan. Allowing high school students to receive college-level instruction and credit will not only build their confidence and knowledge, but also form a foundation to continue their lifetime of learning and teaching. I appreciate the efforts of both Central Michigan University and our CTE team here at the Department of Education to bring this tremendous opportunity to Michigan's high school students."
