Partnering with Universities

The Raise Your Hand Texas Foundation selected 11 partner university teacher preparation programs at 10 universities to administer the Charles Butt Scholarships for Aspiring Teachers. Raise Your Hand also works closely with these programs to identify, implement, and scale promising practices in teacher preparation. The 11 partner programs were selected based on evidence of strong practices in four core areas:

  • A competency-based program that includes rigorous and
    relevant coursework
  • Substantial clinical preparation
  • Use of data for continuous program improvement
  • Strong collaborative relationships with districts

Partner Network Improvement Communities

This a passionate, purpose-driven network of university-teacher preparation programs tackling two of the most persistent problems in teacher preparation to ensure ALL kids in Texas are taught by a culturally-competent, innovative teacher who is driven to continuously improve.
