ECS Highlights State Efforts to Recruit Math And Science Teachers
As federal officials weigh proposals to improve the quality of mathematics and science education, a new report highlights state-led efforts to recruit new teachers into those subject areas and boost their skills through professional development programs.
At least 31 states have financial incentives in place to address subject-area shortages in different areas of K-12 education—including math and science—according to the study, produced by the Denver-based Education Commission of the States. The report also notes that 17 states currently offer monetary incentives to lure teachers to “hard-to-staff” schools.
