What is Educators Rising?


Educators Rising allows students in grades 7-12 to explore careers in education, an important step in preparing quality teachers for tomorrow’s schools. Phi Delta Kappa is the national sponsor of EdRising, and Missouri NEA is the state coordinator. To find out more about Educators Rising-Missouri, download the information packet

Individual students now join EdRising as part of a school chapter or as individuals in schools without a chapter. To join, go to www.educatorsrising.org
. To register your chapter, you go to www.educatorsrising.org, click on Join the Network, select Teacher/Administrator, then choose either "Start a New Program" OR "Affiliate Existing Program." Enter your information. Now you are set up for your students to join. Each student registers themselves on the site, including their school, which will put them into your chapter. 

EdRising is officially recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a career and technical student organization.  Schools that offer a state-approved career and technical education program of study can receive funds through the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act of 2006.  For more information on establishing education and training career cluster courses you should contact Theresa Struemph, Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education at theresa.struemph@dese.mo.gov.
