Project PRIME, a comprehensive collaborative venture designed to inspire students from the Baltimore City Public Schools to consider a career in teaching, began four years ago under the direction of Ms. Brenda P. Haynes. The DeWitt Wallace - Reader's Digest Fund has awarded a $3 million grant to support the project.
1. To inspire minority youth, in particular African-Americans, to consider teaching as a career.
2. To enrich and enhance the image of teaching as a profession.
3. To recruit minority youth, in particular African-Americans, into mathematics and science teaching careers.
4. To prepare teachers to work with diverse student populations.
5. To establish PRIME as a State Resource Center for Minority Teacher Recruitment.
