Teacher Shortage a Growing Crisis
In my recent blog on 12-5-18, I reported on a dinner meeting last Tuesday of superintendents and civic leaders from the Austintown, LaBrae, Boardman and Columbiana school districts in northeast Ohio. A major concern that was discussed during the meeting is the teacher shortage facing our nation. This growing crisis is addressed in a recent report in Education Week about two national surveys conducted this year. One of the troubling findings from this research is that only one in four teachers would recommend their profession as a career for a friend or colleague.
