Albany -- Bainbridge College students will be able to stay on their campus and still earn their education degree from Albany State University.
The presidents of the two schools signed an agreement Monday morning in which both institutions will work together to help reduce Georgia's shortage of teachers.
Students at Bainbridge College will be able to earn a bachelor's in early childhood education from Albany State University, while attending classes in Bainbridge or online.Bainbridge College President Dr. Tom Wilkerson said "It gets those third and fourth years of that early childhood education major, for folks who are place bound."
Albany State University President Dr. Everette Freeman said "This will provide that base, that supply of teachers ready to go into those classrooms and to make a difference."
Georgia education officials predict a need for 14,500 new teachers by 2010, and are working to provide minority teachers as role models to students.
They hope allowing Bainbridge College students more classes closer to home will lead more into education careers.
