Why choose the LeBron James Family Foundation College of Education at UA?
Today’s K-12 public school classrooms reflect our increasingly diverse society — and that offers many opportunities for enriching experiences for students and their teachers. These classrooms of the 21st century also present challenges. As you prepare to teach students from all backgrounds, we want you to know you will have the training and skills you need so that they, and you, succeed.
To do this most effectively, the LeBron James Family Foundation College of Education is concentrating its focus on undergraduate teacher licensure programs as well as two master’s level programs for K-12 administration and curriculum instruction. In addition, being in the field will give you real-time, hands-on experiences so that you understand what happens in a classroom long before you graduate and begin your teaching career.

Stress and trauma impact students’ ability to learn and succeed in school. Child advocates across disciplines recognize that public schools are an important institution for addressing childhood trauma.
