>Officials Addressing Teacher Shortage At Pennsylvania Summit
(Dauphin County, PA) -- Local and state education leaders are gathering to address the statewide teacher shortage. The Pennsylvania Teaching and Technical Assistance Network met yesterday, hoping to come up with solutions. Teacher shortages are impacting lower-income districts, which officials agree is partly due to the state's school funding formula. One major concern among education officials is the disproportionate distribution of property taxes to more well-to-do districts.
