What is NExT?

The Network for Excellence in Teaching (NExT) is focused on training new, effective teachers who will be ready to meet the challenges of 21st-century classrooms across Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota.

A partnership of 14 teacher-preparation programs and the Bush Foundation, NExT is focused on recruiting students, preparing them well, placing them in schools and supporting them once they get there. The teachers who enter classrooms with NExT training and support behind them will be the key to increasing educational achievement for students across Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota.
