If the Governor doesn't take action, T.E.A.C.H. will shut down.

T.E.A.C.H. Scholarship Program Funding Ends

July 18, 2011

Your Action Could Stop This

The T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood® Pennsylvania scholarship program will no longer be funded with any government funding! The recently passed state budget included cuts to child care and legislative leaders targeted state funds for T.E.A.C.H. as one place to make cuts. Federal funds were also cut in the budget and the Governor’s office decided to partially absorb those cuts by eliminating all the federal funding for T.E.A.C.H.

Long story short – T.E.A.C.H. scholarships are gone!

The Governor can change this and make good on his commitment to early childhood education. His office is responsible for the decision to cut federal funds and they can reverse it.

More than 50,000 Pennsylvania children currently attend early childhood education programs that are higher quality because staff members are participating in T.E.A.C.H.

Nearly 2,000 Pennsylvania early childhood professionals may have to drop out of college reducing the quality of early childhood education for the children they serve.

If the Governor doesn’t take action - T.E.A.C.H. will shut down. Program quality will decline and children will have fewer high quality early learning opportunities.

As an Early Childhood Professional and Student I feel that keeping the grants for teaching students to be able to afford to continue their studies is an important matter that doesnt need to be cut as a budget, the children are our next generation isnt it important to think of them as we need these teaching students to educate in our schools when they graduate?

I am currently working at long term substitute teacher at middle school. But I have been teaching for the last 14 years. I would like to have information on earning a grant to become a certified teacher.
