New Journal addresses teacher shortage

The July/August issue of the Illinois School Board Journal has a new look with the same focus, to serve school board members with information and insights that will help them be effective.

This Journal examines the teacher shortage from national, state, and English-learner perspectives. Looking at the teacher shortage nationally, educators describe creative and effective strategies for districts. Multilingualism as an asset for Illinois students adds to the imperative to meet the demand for bilingual teachers, and commentaries from Illinois educators offer advice on meeting the challenge

The Journal also kicks off new features, including a Leadership Letter and ideas for policy and governance work. Watch for the new Journal in your mailbox, or read the digital edition by clicking on the image below.
