The final application deadline for Philadelphia Teaching Fellows (PTF) is on April 15th, Protected content . PTF is a highly selective program that trains accomplished professionals and recent college graduates to become high-impact teachers in high-need schools throughout the Philadelphia area. I am specifically recruiting bilingual candidates because the achievement gap for Latino and Hispanic students is real:
Over 8% of students in Philadelphia public schools are English language learners.
Of the Hispanic and Latino students, only 45% are proficient in Reading.
Each year, only 49% of Latino males graduate. By comparison, 61% of white males graduate.
