Arkansas State University Recruiting and Training Next Generation of Teachers
Welcome to A-State Connections. I’m Johnathan Reaves. Education faces numerous challenges moving forward. The state of Arkansas is predicting a severe teaching shortage in the future…spurred by burnout from the pandemic and others who are retiring. Some schools are reporting problems finding substitute teachers. So there is a demand to fill those open teaching jobs that are coming. Arkansas State University continues to recruit and train the next generation of teachers. To discuss some of these issues, I talked with Assistant Professor of Elementary Education Dr. Nicole Covey.
