The report is organized into five sections. The introduction situates the Pathways program within the current policy context and provides an overview of the Pathways initiative. Section 2 describes the evaluation methods. Section 3 describes program outcomes. Section 4 highlights Pathways strategies that proved successful in recruiting new candidates into teacher education, preparing them for teaching, and supporting them through program completion and the attainment of teacher certification. The final section gives the conclusions of the evaluation as well as the implications for policy that can be drawn from the study.
