According to the NEA:
Over the next decade, schools in the United States will need to hire many new teachers. Four factors will affect the recruitment of these teachers:
-a shrinking teaching force
-a growing student population
-a lack of diversity among teachers to match the diversity of students
-a need for teachers in specific types of schools, geographic locations, and subject areas
In addition to recruiting new teachers, schools will also need to look at the retention of teachers already in the workforce and understand the reasons teachers leave. Some sources estimate that 50 percent of the teachers currently in our classrooms will either retire or leave the profession over the next five to seven years.
It appears there will be many teaching vacancies over the next decade. Can you share some of your favorite teaching jobs websites, resources and tools?
