Experts predict that more than two million new teachers will be needed in the next decade, with critical areas anticipated in math, science, and vocational education. The teacher shortage and a discussion of the rewards of teaching will be addressed by a panel of area teachers during the presentation “Issues in Education” slated for Thursday, Oct. 5, at 5 p.m. in the UPS Auditorium of the Lincoln Center, 3627 Peters Ave. on the campus of Morningside College.
The free event is part of Morningside’s Academic and Cultural Arts Series (ACAS) and is open to the public.
A panel of new and career elementary, middle, and high school teachers from public and private schools in Sioux City, Sheldon, Le Mars, and Lawton will discuss issues surrounding the current teacher shortage and present their views on the rewards and concerns regarding the teaching profession. The presentation will also include a question and answer period following the discussion.
