AB 169

State Legislation: AB 169 (O'Donnell) Golden State Teacher Grant Program

We recommend a support position on AB 169 because it will help alleviate the teacher shortage California faces, especially in subjects critical to a competitive workforce - science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The measure provides a $20,000 grant to enrollees in educator preparation programs. The student must commit to teach for 4 years in a high need teacher subject area after the student receives their teaching credential.
