The USDOE Collaborates with Good Jobs Initiative to Add Professional Perspective in Education System

In order to support present and future educators, the U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) has worked with the Biden-Harris Administration’s Good Jobs Initiative to introduce their ideas and practices to educational institutions across the country.

The USDOE created a set of Good Jobs Principles for Education in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), which offer a foundation for excellent employment in education. These best practices were developed to support all educational institutions in giving their employees access to chances for professional development, competitive pay, benefits that can support a family, and a secure work environment.

Together with these guidelines, new funding opportunities were unveiled to boost the number of teachers by giving prospective educators access to high-quality, reasonably priced courses. Nearly $50 million was set aside by the USDOE to assist grow-your-own initiatives, high school dual enrolment programs, registered apprenticeships, and in-class experiential learning.
Funding for minority-serving institutions to diversify the teaching pool and funds to assist those pursuing certification as bilingual or multilingual educators are also included in this commitment.

The DOL has allocated roughly $200 million in additional funding to develop registered apprenticeship programs. Funds will be allocated by the USDOE and DOL to promote the establishment and growth of technical assistance centers for the workforce of educators and registered apprenticeship programs.

The initiative aims to upgrade the education standards by introducing the professional and practical aspects of the modern industry. Beyond the standard aspects of discipline, it aims to imbibe the basic business aspects, different functional departments and their functions, identifying the industry process, needs and resource management.
