Teachers Come from Spain

If you’re having a hard time finding workers, maybe you should reconsider your methods of findings them.

Barnes USD 223 and Marysville USD 364 have gone a long ways to recruit Spanish teachers. They’ve gone to Spain. The Marysville Advocate has a short profile of the two teachers, who are married to each other.

We don’t wish any ill will on the individuals involved. Foreign trade is good, and more people to the two teachers who are getting a chance to live in the U.S. for a while.

But maybe the difficulty in finding teachers is a wake-up call that we need changes in school staffing policies–things such as merit pay and alternative methods of certification.
