Dearth of school teachers

A recent report from Ireland showed that most public secondary schools often have no applicants for teaching positions.

With the start of a new school year in Australia and many other countries or the return to school in most other countries there will be a nervous expectation of which teacher they will have but what if there is no teacher?

A recent report from Ireland showed that most public secondary schools often have no applicants for teaching positions. The short list of applicants is actually short of any applicants but why?

In some cases, there may be a number of applicants but no quality applicants — a hint, run spell and grammar checks on your resume please. There must be a reason why there are less quality applicants and the general suggestions are low pay rates, increased paperwork, less positive students, expectations of solving all of society’s problems and many more items.

If you want quality and quantity, then it must be significant changes to the profession.
