E-Learning Could Help Teacher Shortage, But Rural Broadband Must Improve


A survey shows Illinois’ teacher shortage continues to grow and downstate areas are impacted most.


The information is from the Illinois Association of Regional Superintendents of Schools. It shows 85-percent of districts statewide having a problem with teacher shortages, up 78-percent in 2018. 


The group’s president–Mark Jontry, says one thing that could help is program sharing through "e-learning"–involving multiple school districts and even community colleges, but rural broadband must get better.



More than 500 districts participated in the survey.
