Excerpt
Excerpt: The Office of Innovation and Improvement's (OII) Innovation of the Week is the Troops-to-Teachers program. The brave men and women fighting in Iraq--and their colleagues around the world--represent one of the most highly skilled, highly trained sectors of our society,? Nina Rees, Deputy Under-secretary of OII, testified before the House Committee on Veterans? Affairs April 9. Many of our service personnel possess a command of mathematics and science, subjects that are critical to our nation's economic success in the 21st Century, and subjects for which there is a critical shortage of qualified teachers. Troops-to-Teachers promotes high standards by identifying and bringing these talented men and women, and their top-notch skills and abilities, into our nation's public schools. Since the program's inception in 1994, Troops-to-Teachers has placed over 5,000 new teachers in the classroom--and many of them have filled needs that are of the highest priority. For example, approximately 40 percent of placements have been in the hard-to-fill areas of math, science, and special education. Participants are also heavily male and heavily minority. In addition, retention rates have been strong. As of 1999, 82 percent of participants were still in the classroom. Source.
