Naples News: Lastinger Center’s school-improvement activites in Collier County

In his “Class Notes” article, Naples News columnist Joe Landon praised the UF Lastinger Center’s school-improvement efforts in Collier County. The center has had a close relationship with the school district dating back to 2004. The program gives teachers in participating high-need schools the chance to pursue master’s or specialist degrees with the help of full-tuition scholarships. So far, 31 teachers in Immokalee have completed their graduate work thanks to the program, and another 30 are hard at work following in their footsteps.
