Plugging The Holes In NC’s Teacher Pipeline

Aug 24, 2017

From 2010-2015, North Carolina’s public university teacher training programs experienced a 30 percent decrease in enrollment. Meanwhile the state also saw a high rate of teacher turnover. 

In North Carolina, 9 percent of teachers leave the state or the profession altogether each year. Now universities and policy makers are working to attract and retain more qualified teachers in the state’s education training programs and reduce the teacher shortage.
