Expanding and Diversifying Pathways Into Teaching
Rethinking Teacher Workforce Solutions Webinar Series
The first of three webinars exploring how education leaders in a state can collaborate to rethink teacher workforce solutions to revitalize and restore the most important profession in society.
This webinar explored policy ideas for both the short term, during the pandemic, and long term, more holistically, to recruit and prepare a more diverse teacher workforce and open more pathways to those who want to teach.
Panelists from SREB’s Education Human Capital Roundtables discussed topics such as early recruitment and dual preparation partnerships, rethinking preparation curricula and schedules to meet today’s challenges, and revamping student teaching from A to Z.
