Urban Education is the Greatest Social Justice and Civil Rights Issue in America Today.

Today, educational inequality exists along economic and racial lines. Too many children are condemned to substandard educational opportunities based solely on their zip code.

The Memphis Teacher Residency believes this is unjust and unfair. We employ a model of training that emphasizes the spiritual, social and instructional needs of teachers that we call Christian Community Education. We invite you to explore our model and to join us in Memphis as we promote Christian love expressed in equal education.
