Friday August 26, 2005 - U.S. & World - California Facing Teacher Shortage

Perhaps teacher salaries will rise faster than inflation over the next decade. When California faced a nursing shortage (which it still does) wages rose (as supply and demand would indicate). With home prices where they are right now it is no wonder a person in college would choose a different career than teaching. Teacher wages are going to have to rise in order to attract and retain quality (heck even unqualified) educators.
