America is facing a potentially catastrophic teacher shortage. With stagnant salaries, stressful working conditions, and an increasingly politicized profession, our nation’s pool of trained educators is dwindling. The U.S. Department of Education reports teacher shortages in every state. A recent National Education Association poll found that more than half the nation’s teachers are now looking for an exit. Join our panel of experts online at 1:30 p.m. EDT, Thursday, August 18, as they discuss critical information for educators, parents, and policymakers, including:

  • What is causing the national teacher shortage?
  • What does it mean for the future of K-12 education in America?
  • How do we get more qualified professionals back in schools?
Free and open to the public.
