Educator Staffing Shortage Worsens

Aug 3, 2022, 2:53 PM

(From The Washington Post) While many families are preparing for the 2022-2023 school year, some schools are still trying to find teachers during a teacher shortage, prompting unorthodox fixes to fill positions. In Nevada, school districts are offering a $4,000 “relocation bonus” to new teachers who move from out of state or more than 100 miles. A new state law in Arizona allows college students to take teaching jobs. A similar law, which took effect in Florida on July 1, offers K-12 teaching jobs to military veterans who served for at least four years. Meanwhile, Arizona district leaders are considering making up for a dearth of math teachers by sending a small number of students into online learning for part of the day.
