Paying to attract more CS teachers in England
Computing is included as one of the priorities in England’s offer of special funding to attract more teachers. Scholarships up to 25K pounds are pretty impressive. Texas is offering loan forgiveness. I don’t know if there’s anyone else in the US trying this approach.
Schools Minister David Laws said more scholarships and bursaries would be available to help recruit the most talented graduates with the potential to be brilliant teachers in key subjects. This would help raise standards in schools and ensure all children were given a good education.
Scholarships, awarded by respected subject organisations, will be available to the most talented maths, physics, chemistry and computing trainees. Bursaries will be available to top graduates in maths, physics, chemistry, computing, and languages, in primary and in priority subjects at secondary school (English, history, biology, geography, music, and design and technology).
