New Statewide Commission Launches to Boost Teacher Recruitment and Retention

(MISSOURINET) –  Members of a 22-person statewide teacher recruitment and retention commission have been chosen.

Blue Ribbon Commission members include two former teachers of the year, Missouri Board of Education members, the Governor’s Office and business leaders across the state.

They will find ways to improve teacher recruitment and retention as well as the school culture.

During this week’s Missouri Board of Education meeting, President Charlie Shields, of northwest Missouri’s St. Joseph, said the commission is a step in the right direction.

The commission’s first meeting is scheduled for June and members are to report back to the State Board of Education in October.
