Yussen awarded grant to study alternative teacher licensure

Steve YussenSteve Yussen, professor in the Institute of Child Development, has received a Faculty Interactive Research Program grant to assess the impact of alternative teacher licensure in Minnesota. The grant, from the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA), will allow Yussen and his colleagues to study the new Minnesota alternative teacher licensure provision during the first 18 months it is implemented in relation to several key intended outcomes.

Through the grant program, CURA encourages University faculty members to conduct research that involves a significant urban-related public policy issue for the state or its communities and that includes active engagement with groups, agencies, or organizations in Minnesota involved with the issue.
