Friday, August 26, 2005 - U.S. & World - California Facing Teacher Shortage

With home prices where they are right now it is no wonder a person in college would choose a different career than teaching. Teacher wages are going to have to rise in order to attract and retain quality (heck even unqualified) educators.
