The Council of Chief State School Officers, a nonpartisan group of education chiefs across the country, has released a guidebook for state policymakers to build stronger pipelines into the profession.

The group identifies six key strategies states should consider to recruit, prepare, and support teachers:

• Elevate the teaching profession to combat the view that teachers are held in low regard.

• Make teaching a financially appealing career.

• Expand pathways to enter teaching, from targeting high school students to military veterans.

• Bring more diversity to the teaching workforce.

• Set reasonable expectations for retaining teachers and rethink policies that align with young workers' career expectations.

Use data to target strategies where shortages exist.
