Recognizing the critical connection of teacher quality and satisfaction with academic success, CAAASA will be presenting a special session on the California Teacher Crisis at its Annual Professional Development Summit on March 8, 2017.
Over the past few decades, there has been a steady and alarming increase in high-quality teacher shortages across the state. Not only has the supply of new teachers diminished, but teacher attrition is also on the rise, prompting many districts and their supporting policymakers to rethink what they can do to attract and keep strong teachers.
In California, one of the biggest drivers of teacher turnover is the increasing cost of housing. Drawing on its history of working with school districts across the state, DCG will join the panel to share strategies to create affordable housing options for teachers so California’s strongest teachers stay in California.
