SAN MATEO, Calif., March 5, 2019—Swing Education, an on-demand marketplace for substitute teachers, recently released a free eBook to help school and district leaders successfully navigate teacher shortages impacting states nationwide. The eBook, “Your School’s Guide to Surviving the Teacher Shortage,” details the causes of teacher shortages, explores solutions, and outlines the necessary steps schools can take to help alleviate the issue.
“From an increase in the demand for new teachers as other teachers retire to a decline in the number of teachers both entering and staying in the profession, today’s teacher shortage is a complex issue,” said Mike Teng, CEO of Swing Education. “Our new eBook helps administrators better understand and navigate the shortage while providing strategies to create an environment in which all teachers—and students—can thrive.”
The eBook is comprised of five chapters that cover a breakdown of supply and demand, why teachers leave the profession, what to do to retain teachers, creative ways to recruit teachers, and why growing a robust substitute pool can make a difference on student success. In addition, the eBook provides practical and concrete strategies that administrators and school business officials can implement in their own schools and districts.
