KWTX | A&M Receives Grant To Recruit, Train, Retain Teachers:

Texas A&M University will receive a $600,000 grant for a program designed to help high-need school districts recruit, train and retain mid-career professionals and recent college graduates who didn’t major in education as teachers, US Education Secretary Margaret Spellings announced Thursday.

Why don’t we ever see any grants directed to retaining teachers? My guess is that it’s easier to whine about teacher shortages and get a new crop of teachers in every year rather than address and change the causes of teacher attrition. But it’s just a guess.

  1. Of course, it’s easier to get a new crop of teachers every year: They don’t know what they’re getting into!
