Statewide meetings to begin this week about teacher recruitment and retention plans

Missouri’s teacher shortage – and ways to help fix the problem – will be the focus of a series of statewide public engagement meetings beginning today. 

The Missouri Board of Education and a statewide commission hit the road to explain the teacher workforce struggles and share recommendations to help recruit and retain educators. 

Those recommendations include a path to increase teacher pay long-term; boosting mental health resources for school staff; and tuition assistance for teachers. 

A meeting will be held in each of Missouri’s eight Congressional districts. 

This week’s public meetings will be in Knob Noster Monday and Tuesday in Jefferson City.
