Podcast: Teacher shortages? with special guest Dr. Pia Wong

The New York Times recently reported,

Across the country, districts are struggling with shortages of teachers, particularly in math, science and special education — a result of the layoffs of the recession years combined with an improving economy in which fewer people are training to be teachers.

This morning, the Diane Rehm show Teacher Shortages Across The U.S. also addressed the impending shortage.

So what is really going on? What are the solutions? What are the implications of the current teacher shortage for equity and access? Are Teach For America and other alternative certification pathways the key to solving these shortages? These questions and more are addressed in this Cloaking Inequity podcast addressing the reemerging teacher shortage in schools.
