A close, multi-year partnership with The Chicago Teacher Pipeline Partnership out of Illinois Sate University's College of Education.  A preeminent urban teacher education program focusing on not only the development of well trained urban educators, but also the development of students in inner city communities on the south, west and north sides of Chicago.  Utilizing the stratgey of total immersion for the prospective teachers, the GADC as community partner, our network of community-engaged schools and our community based partners all benefit from the resources brought to us by the TEACHER + PLUS program.
