Letters to the Editor...
hiring non-certified people to fill vacant teaching position

In my school district, non-certs have been
tried as substitutes, due to the teacher
shortage, but not very effectively.
I think that hiring non-certified people
may look like a good alternative, but
instead the focus should be on making the
profession more appealing to college age
students. Salaries need to be made more on
line with other similiar professions, for
example, as to yearly raises. States need
to appreciate and value talented teachers.
This needs to be clear in state budgets.

I personally know of 3 students in college
who said they really would have enjoyed
teaching, but changed because they knew
they couldn't support themselves on a
teacher salary.
