In Kansas, there are also critical teacher shortages, but "opening classrooms to untrained and unqualified individuals is not the solution," says science teacher Mark Farr.
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. "This is an attempt to circumvent collective bargaining and regulations designed to ensure fairness, safety and quality," Farr explains. "The fact that the extreme anti-public education majority in the Kansas Legislature sought to expand this coalition before even a single year was complete speaks to the real motivation here." Even if a state believes that it has no choice but to fill teaching positions with underprepared candidates, students in disadvantaged schools are the ones who are ultimately pay the price. "Pitting highly qualified, licensed teachers against unqualified individuals is a recipe for further inequality," Farr says.
