March/April Journal:
Early learning changes the course

The March/April issue of The Illinois School Board Journal continues the collaboration with The Ounce of Prevention Fund to communicate with school boards the importance of early learning to positive, long-term student outcomes.

As boards of education across the nation deal with a scarcity of teachers and substitutes, changes to Illinois admission standards have made it harder for students to become teachers -- McKendree University's Jim Rosborg and IASB's Patrick Rice tell the story.

Also in the Journal, IASB’s digital engagement is on the rise, including this News Blog, but caution is necessary for board members when considering participating in unrestricted discussion platforms.
