Transforming Perceptions of Urban Education

The Center for Future Educators and the New Jersey Future Educators Association extend congratulations to the Rowan University Teacher Academy for the recent publication of the article "Transforming Perceptions of Urban Education: Lessons From Rowan University's Urban Teacher Academy" in The Educational Forum. (Citation: Transforming Perceptions of Urban Education: Lessons From Rowan University's Urban Teacher Academy Meg White, Corine Meredith Brown, Martha Graham Viator, Laurel L. Byrne, and Lorraine C. Ricchezza The Educational Forum Vol. 81 , Iss. 1, 2017)

The article's abstract reads: To be an effective urban educator requires teachers to understand the contextual factors of students, the school, and the community, and their cumulative effects on learning. Urban teacher academies support a better understanding of urban classrooms and challenge stereotypes of the urban context. The focus of this study was to compare participants' perceptions of urban settings before and after 2 weeks spent at an urban teacher academy for high school students.
