Frustration. Burnout. Attrition. It’s Time To Address The National Teacher Shortage

teachers-wanted_slide-f490f6ba4043bb11d14c641c5fd6a253f638a74b-s800-c85New national reports out today by the Learning Policy Institute look at the widening teacher shortage problem — and offer solutions.

How do we recruit and train enough teachers to meet the needs of our student population.   For years, we have heard that qualified teachers are in short supply leading to this impending event “The Teacher Shortage”.  We have been warned that by the year 2015, 2016, 2017, etc. we will not have enough teachers to meet the needs of our public school system. This conjures images of idle children sitting alone in an  unsupervised classroom or worse yet,  running rampant through the streets because there is an  “AT CAPACITY” sign on the school’s front door. Truth is, we have had shortages for some time in many areas; teachers in STEM fields, teachers of color, male teachers, culturally conscious teachers, etc. Yet, we continue to ask teachers to adapt to constant curriculum changes, the latest education silver bullet,  expanding administrative duties, evaluation and regulation through scores on high stakes tests and then wonder why the best and brightest are not clamoring to join the teaching profession. So if we continue to be unsuccessful in substantially increasing the numbers of teachers, is there a Plan B?
