Ep #57: Teacher Shortage in Arizona
- Doug Zanes
- August 25, 2015
On this episode of Zanes’ Law Personal Injury Legal Tips, we’re covering a serious issue in Arizona as a whole. A teacher shortage in Arizona. Sadly, the teachers in Arizona are not getting proper support in terms of funding, resources and salaries. As a result, many of them are fleeing the state because they are unable to support themselves and their families on their extremely low salaries. According to the statistics, in 2014-2015 school year, 74% of schools districts in Arizona had 1 in 5 open positions.
As you may know from our previous episodes and blog posts, we, at Zanes Law, are a huge support system for local teachers in Tucson, Arizona. We would like to thank all of the amazing teachers who have stuck through these hard times and haven’t left their students.
