Farr, who is also president of the Kansas National Education Association, says the legislature is merely using any shortages to fill this expanding coalition of districts with non-licensed teachers. The goal? Further de-professionalize teaching and strip educators of their collective voice.

"Pitting highly qualified, licensed teachers against unqualified individuals is a recipe for further inequality," Farr says.
