Oklahoma Looks to Troops-to-Teacher Program to Ease GapJune 28, 2018 | :
TULSA, Oklahoma –
The Oklahoma Department of Education is hoping veterans can help fight our teacher shortage crisis.
The program is called Troops to Teachers, it’s been around for decades, and Oklahoma is one of only a handful of states awarded more than a million dollars in grant money for the program.
With this new funding, state leaders are hoping to see a huge increase in veterans in the classroom over the next five years.
