WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — Delaware is launching a new program in hopes of holding on to more teachers.

The News Journal of Wilmington reports that the state is creating a new academy for high schoolers considering a career in education. It's part of an effort to combat the growing trend of teachers leaving the field within five years.

The academy kicks off this fall at 15 different high schools. The goal is to build a pipeline of high-quality students interested in teaching.

The academy consists of three years of classes developed in collaboration with teachers, Department of Education staff and others.
