  • 1.  New Data Show School Staffing Shortages Disproportionately Hitting High-Poverty Districts During Pandemic

    Posted 17 days ago
    "During a school year marked by fears of K-12 labor shortages - with nationwide reports of principals driving bus routes, superintendents filling in as substitute teachers and school cafeterias forgoing hot meals due to a lack of workers - a new analysis out of Washington state quantifies the depth of disparities in teacher and staff vacancy rates between high- and low-poverty school systems."

    I agree and I think if the states help attract more people from within these communities to the education field ( Early childhood and K-12)  through special incentives that could cover school expenses, health care for these individuals and their families, and child care benefits regardless of their income, focusing in early childhood  education and trainings, can be very helpful in bringing more people to the work force. Teachers are the builders of a stronger communities and nations and we should always invest in building a strong future for our children as they will be the leaders who will take care of us when we are older!

    Jorge, or anyone, does anyone have any reports/projections on how BuildBackBetter would affect early childhood funding and staffing? And does anyone know if this would affect only child care and education for typically developing children or would it affect special needs children as well and special education? Thanks
