Obama administration to hire up to 1,000 educators fullerton
— The Obama administration on Thursday is expected to hire thousands of educators, part of a push to expand and modernize its high school and college education system, according to a White House official.
The hiring will help to address the need for high-quality education for students in underserved communities and will support a broader education mission, the official said.
It is part of the administration’s effort to diversify the workforce for a 21st-century economy and build on the achievements of the Obama administration’s successful Race to the Top program, the source said.
The White House said in a statement that the hiring of high school teachers will allow students in low-income communities to receive more quality education.
The hiring will also help to build on investments made in education and training, including a new federal grant program for low- to moderate-income students.
