The UO College of Education is endorsing the Journalistic Learning Initiative (FLI) and partnering with the SOJC to host a training workshop. This training involves assembling a team of certified JLI Educators to place in paid positions alongside teachers at school in Oregon and California. The group is committed to improving high school graduation rates in Oregon and achievement gap.
Their target audience is recent journalism school graduates from the UO and peer institutions who are interested in a “gap year” where they can be trained to work alongside middle and high school teachers.
