New York City schools face a shortage of teachers qualified to teach mathematics, science and technology. At the same time new demands are being made on teachers of these subjects by local, state and national reform efforts. The varied resources that can be brought to bear on this crisis are fragmented and lack coordination.

Five colleges of The City University of New York (Brooklyn College, College of Staten Island, City College, Hunter College and Lehman College) together with New York University have formed a Collaborative to restructure their training of prospective teachers of grades K to 12. The Collaborative is increasing the number of college graduates entering science and mathematics teaching at all academic levels, and better equipping them for teaching these subject areas to New York's culturally, ethnically, economically and linguistically diverse population.
