According to Business Insider, the number of Americans training to become teachers has dropped by a third, this decrease is so bad that it's starting to create a shortage in the amount of educators that we have. The article says that the drop in training suggest that problems surrounding the position, for example low pay, is what is causing discouragement in future/potential educators. What are your opinions on #teachershortage #teachersofinstagram #teachershortagecrisis #teachershortageinamerica #teachershortageisreal
This is part of the reason there is a teacher shortage. This is the reason teachers often have 2 to 3 jobs depending on where they live. This is not enough of a salary when you have to fund your own classroom. If you want more teachers there needs to be a pay increase #teachers #tenyearchallenge #teachersofinstagram #teacherproblems #ifyouonlyknew #teachershortage #increase #moremoney #teachingisaworkofheart #teachersrock #likeforlikes #beyonce #newyork #thirftykinder #followme #influncer #strugglinginfluncer
Starting salary for #nashville public school teacher is $33,500 - $39,500. When spread out over 12 months minus federal taxes, less than $2,000 a month. Average rent is $1,405 for 889 sq ft apt in Nashville. Between this and tedious teacher certification process, no wonder there is a #teachershortage. #education #liveablewages #chinwag #allthingsequal
SOLUTION TO THE TEACHER SHORTAGE: Make the students have a more positive experience in school. And who does that responsibility fall on? Yup, you. The teacher. . . Whaaaat? Really @newsday ? . . They completely missed the mark with why teachers (especially STEM, Sped, and ENL) are leaving and potential teachers aren’t coming in. And it’s very simple: 1️⃣Give teachers a decent wage that’s based on the hours they actually work as opposed to time spent in the classroom only. We are one of the only professions that doesn’t get overtime for staying late. That needs to change. 2️⃣(And this might be an unpopular opinion)... Get rid of Common Core. Stop enacting shitty roll-outs to new standards before they’ve been tested and teachers don’t have time to get proper training to what a good lesson with those standards looks like. 3️⃣Stop attacking our unions. Stop messing with our retirement. Stop trying to make it more difficult for us to love our jobs. 4️⃣ Decrease the politics in education. Why do we need to worry about the state of public education (OUR JOBS) every four years? 5️⃣Stop treating new teachers like shit. What is the turnover rate looking like these days (especially in those rural, inner city, and poverty stricken areas)? Yeah, there’s more teachers needed, but how about we try to also KEEP the ones we have? 6️⃣And probably the most important (in my opinion)- MAKE SCHOOLS SAFE AGAIN. I was just talking to my friends about this. We all know it sucks that students don’t feel safe in their learning environment. But what about the people who come to work every day wondering if today might be their last? I. Did. Not. Sign. Up. For. This. Stop acting like the teacher shortage is because teachers are going into the wrong grade levels. Start looking at how to make teaching an enticing career choice. ⏸What do you think? If you agree, give me a ❤️ and comment with what is one thing that would make your job as a teacher just a little easier? For me? I’ll take a 5️⃣ and 6️⃣ combo!
#Pennsylvania has a #teachershortage, and an acute shortage of #teachersofcolor. Pedro Rivera, Pennsylvania Secretary of Education, told a news conference @ccpedu that the state has the least diverse teaching population in the nation. • "Ninety-six percent of educators are white, and fewer underrepresented students are studying education," Rivera said. • Under a new pilot, 20 Philadelphia high school students interested in becoming teachers will get tuition help at seven colleges including @cheyneyuniv, @wcuofpa and @templeuniv.
It’s a rough time to be a teacher. Take care of yourself!
The Liberal Democrats are prioritising young people and addressing the teacher shortage by pledging to recruit 20,000 more teachers as part of a £10 billion a year investment in education. A vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote for education. #votelibdem #libdem #educationmatters #teachershortage #GE2019 #bearderforbanbury

Burdensome Student Loan Debt Is Contributing to the Country’s Teacher Shortage Crisis.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ The country’s crushing student loan debt has been dominating education news — from the campaign trail to the recent resignation of a Trump administration senior student-loan official who called the student-loan system “fundamentally broken,” to the recent contempt of civil court charge against U.S.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos and the Education Department for collecting loan payments from thousands of students defrauded by for-profit colleges.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Until the country addresses the cost of higher education and the burden of student loan debt, we will continue to see shortages of well-prepared professionals in key public sectors that pay less than many private sector jobs. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #studentloan #debt #teachershortage #shortagecrisis #educationnews

aaOn Wednesday, I visited Ecole Panorama Ridge Secondary, a vibrant school of over 1500 students where about 80 of my colleagues work in both French and English. They gave me their time and attention as we discussed Provincial Bargaining, our need to think outside the box, and the risks inherent in taking action, any action. I am proud to be one among 45 000 BC teachers who do this work and who remain committed to doing what's best for kids, and what's best for society at large. A well-rounded and accessible public education system is the foundation to a functioning democracy and when I stand in solidarity with my colleagues in BC and around the world, I know I am fighting for something much bigger than myself. Thank you for giving us your lunch hour, Panorama teachers, for engaging in this discussion, for challenging us to think differently, and for reminding us of the sacrifices of the teachers who did this work before us. We are better for having have met with you. * Bonus when you get to see old teacher colleagues who have 'risen up the ranks' and become administrators. Like one of my union mentors use to say, there is nothing wrong with teachers becoming principals, we need good administrators who will support teachers bcs they know the work.:) #FundPublicEd #RedforEd #RedforBCEd #TeacherShortage BC Teachers' Federation (BCTF)
Teacher Shortage will have a full trailer soon, and I absolutely cannot wait!!! Here’s a tease for now, you’ll have to wait to see why my face is doing that! #tattooedwomen #horrormovie #gothgirl #alternativegirl #tattooedactress #behindthescenes #teachershortage #indiehorror #indieactress #throwbackthursday #employeerights
Future Educators of America workshop @STU in Miami Gardens. Teacher shortage is a critical issue. Broward Schools currently have over 600 vacancies. Fewer and fewer high school graduates enter colleges of education. Without addressing the systemic issues in the system of education, WHO will be teaching our children and grandchildren? #education #fldoe #bcps #mdcps #browardschools #dadeschools #STU #MiamiGardens #teachershortage #teaching #teacher #school #college #collegeofeducation #richardcorcoran
Class sizes are getting bigger due to the teacher shortage crisis.. making it increasingly difficult for any student to receive the attention they deserve.
