The Newark-Montclair Partnership
Montclair State University (MSU) and the Newark Public Schools (NPS) have worked in collaboration for more than three decades. The partners have designed the NMUTR to provideall of the essential components of an effective teacher preparation program: sharing facilities, co-leading teaching experiences and coursework, as well as identifying and strengthening models of excellence. Representatives from NPS and MSU faculty co-designed the curriculum to ensure all candidates receive rigorous preparation that will prepare effective teacher leaders for urban schools. The NMUTR is not just about supplying districts with new teachers – it recruits and prepares outstanding teachers with a passion for urban education, deep commitment and dedication to the Newark community, and a relentless focus on high levels of student engagement and achievement.
