Not Enough Qualified Teachers

The Kansas City Star runs an article on an all-too-familiar topic. No, we’re not talking about the school funding lawsuit. We mean the need for teachers.

The need has grown due to the No Child Left Behind act.

Blue Valley is one district that is starting to find the solution: It “has negotiated a flexible salary schedule that allows incentives in areas where the supply is limited, such as special education.”

Yes, financial incentives matter, even for teachers.

The KC Star story, by the way, was provoked by a new report from the legislature’s Division of Post Audit. The report is available in PDF. You may view the full report or the executive summary.
