Many schools have encountered new struggles recruiting and retaining enough teachers over the last few years — and many face chronic staffing challenges that long predate the pandemic. To help address these challenges, Bellwether scanned the country for ideas and resources to create Creativity From Necessity: A Practical Toolkit for Leaders to Address Teacher Shortages.
Based on interviews with more than 40 experts and practitioners in a wide range of roles and landscapes, this toolkit curates ideas and resources school leaders can put to use right away to improve teacher recruitment, hiring, and retention — even in challenging circumstances.
