Framingham State University Receives $1.5 Million Grant for Training Teachers
NEC member Framingham State University recently received a $1.5 million grant to train local teachers in teaching English as a second language.
In a five-year long program starting in January 2018, public school teachers in Framingham, Milford, and Waltham can enroll in Framingham State’s master’s in education program with a concentration in Teaching English as a Second Language. This is the second time Framingham State has received a grant from the U.S. Department of Education to help educators teach students English. The program also allows teachers to offer workshops about the American school system to parents of English language learners.
“Framingham State is committed to preparing the best teachers in the Commonwealth,” said Framingham State President F. Javier Cevallos. “This grant will enable these communities to provide a more effective education to their growing ELL populations.”
The New England Council congratulates Framingham State on receiving this grant and commends their dedication to local students. Read more in the Worcester Business Journal or Framingham State’s press release
