Committee approves Rep Tedders bill to address teacher shortage

first_img Legislation from state Rep. Jim Tedder, which will address Michigan’s shortage of substitute teachers, was approved by the House Education Reform Committee today.“During committee testimony last week, it was revealed over 1,000 Michigan classrooms a day do not have substitute teachers – that’s completely unacceptable” said Tedder, of Clarkston. “If we have educated professionals or students studying in college, we should allow them the opportunity to be in the classroom. Let the districts decide what works best in their own classrooms.”House Bill 4069 will allow school districts to consider substitute teachers who have completed a minimum of 60 college credit hours or have earned an associate’s degree.“The regulations Michigan has in place right now do not work for students or local districts,” Tedder said. “This legislation will go a long way towards filling classrooms with substitute teachers, even if just for a day, and giving students the education they deserve.”The legislation advances to the House for its consideration.##### Categories: News,Tedder News 27Apr Committee approves Rep.
