We’ve seen the headlines: School districts claim that teachers are leaving the profession in droves as a result of the pandemic. Is that true, or is the teacher shortage a chronic problem exacerbated by COVID-19? Who are the missing teachers? How can journalists hold school districts accountable – to their staff, to their families?
Join the Education Writers Association for a Nov. 2 webinar dedicated to supporting the journalists who are seeking answers about teacher shortages at the national and local levels. Taking place at 2 p.m. Eastern, the online event will feature speakers who will help journalists unpack the topic.
Speakers will offer insight into classroom cultures, drilling down on teaching positions affected most by the vacancies, and providing journalists with fresh story ideas and questions to ask school districts.
Hear about what data exists (and what doesn’t), get a look inside a Boston classroom from a teacher’s perspective, and understand the invisible work special educators do when vacancies go unfilled in a school district.
