To better understand the problem begin addressing the educator talent crisis faced within the state, PPA partnered with the Michigan Education Association, AFT Michigan, and the Middle Cities Education Association to host a series of educator workforce solution summits designed to collect ideas from frontline educators on how best to recruit and retain educators in Michigan. The summits solicited specific solutions from current teachers and administrators, education support professionals, educator preparation professionals from colleges and universities, and aspiring educators. The work resulted in a report, Examining Michigan’s Education Workforce: How to Address the Talent Shortage Facing Michigan’s Schools, which can be read here.
