Fewer High School Students Show Interest in Teaching, Study Says

Bad news continues to roll in for those watching the flow of people into the teaching pipeline: A new report released today by ACT Inc. says that interest in teaching among young persons continues to shrink.

“The nation must fill the pipeline to alleviate the expected shortfall in the number of available teachers,” the authors write. “Our inability to do so will force educational systems to think differently about how we deliver education—which might, in turn, have a negative impact on student success.”
