MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Three University System of New Hampshire schools have developed a more affordable Master of Education program for teachers in Manchester.

The new master's degree program in curriculum and instruction is being offered exclusively to Manchester educators and costs less than $10,000. It's a collaboration among Granite State College, Plymouth State University and the University of New Hampshire's Manchester campus.

Manchester School Superintendent Debra Livingston said it will provide a much needed pipeline of highly educated workers to lead the city's schools.

"The new M.Ed. degree program has the potential to change the landscape of education in Manchester," she said.

University system officials said the program was developed in response to the demand to have more teachers qualified to teach at the college level and will build on the strengths of each institution.
