According to the Learning Policy Institute, there are not enough qualified applicants for open teaching positions across the United States. Some districts are addressing the teacher shortage by cutting certain electives and increasing class sizes. The California Legislature is even considering a bill that gives teachers tax breaks.
If passed, the Teacher Recruitment and Retention Act of 2017 would give new teachers certain tax credits. It would also exempt those who remain in the profession more than five years from paying state taxes on income earned from teaching. The bill is currently in the suspense file.
