National Teacher Corps (U.S.)
The Teacher Corps was first established as the U.S. National Teacher Corps, as a product of the Higher Education Act of 1965. Its purpose was to recruit and train teachers for inner cities and low income areas. In 1970, the University of Nebraska at Omaha opened a Teacher Corps recruiting and referral center, one of only five in the United States. The Teacher Corps program ended in 1981, with the passage of the Education Consolidation and Improvement Act.
