Transformative Education Network

Promoting Social Justice and Antiracism in Education

The Transformative Education Network (TEN) at Montclair State University prepares, supports and develops teachers who teach toward antiracism and social justice. TEN was created as an inclusive umbrella term for three programs, The Urban Teacher Teacher Residency, The Newark Teacher Project and the Critical Urban Education Speaker Series. These three programs have a shared mission of advancing racial justice in education, offering critical professional development, and actively creating an expanding network of anti-racist educators across our partner districts. TEN is dedicated to recruiting and sustaining teachers of Color for New Jersey school districts and has a track record of success.

Please support TEN residents to become future teachers!

Gifts of all sizes make a direct and immediate impact for individuals seeking to become teachers in Newark, Orange, and other NJ school districts. Your donation would support funding for students to participate in summer programming where our students become grounded in the communities where they will teach and develop their justice lens and antiracist stance.
