In a presentation to the CCNetwork, Stacey Pelika, Director of Research for the National Education Association, and Chad Aldeman with Edunomics Lab, a National Center Partner, presented a picture of teacher shortages that is much more nuanced and less dramatic than the headlines.

They shared a picture that makes a compelling case for addressing short-term needs while also rethinking and rebuilding systems that will attract, prepare, support, and retain teachers for schools of the future.
