AACTE Presents on Teacher Shortage for District HR Officers and State Licensure Agencies
In February, Vice President for Research Policy & Advocacy Jacqueline Rodriguez and I presented at the National Teacher Shortage Summit. The Summit was hosted by the American Association of School Personnel Administrators and co-sponsored by numerous organizations, including AACTE. Our presentation summarized findings from numerous AACTE studies on trends in educator preparation and featured initiatives by several AACTE members to address the shortage of teachers and other essential educators.
The National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) subsequently recorded a webinar with the two of us, summarizing our presentation, and has made it available free for AACTE members. The webinar also features other presenters from the Summit.
The 25-minute AACTE presentation is a concise summary of the “supply side” of the educator shortage and of activities colleges and universities are undertaking to address it, which you may find helpful in communicating with stakeholders.
