Education officials want to put an end to the S.C. teacher shortage

SOUTH CAROLINA (WJBF) – Education officials say to stop South Carolina’s growing teacher shortage means persuading teachers not to leave the profession.

More than 6,000 public school teachers did not return in 2016, and the number of college students graduating with an education degree is shrinking.

The state’s center for education recruitment, retention and advancement say mentoring programs for new teachers is a key component of bridging that gap.
