Stu Skauge, Michigan Education Association UniServ director for Marquette and Alger counties and former middle school teacher of 33 years, said Marquette at one time had seven elementary schools. Fisher and Parkview elementary schools were first to close, and the process was painful and contentious, Skauge said.

"Then Pat Smith came in and they decided they were (going to) close ... Whitman," Skauge said.

Stu Skauge, Michigan Education Association UniServ director for Marquette and Alger counties and former middle school teacher of 33 years, said more testing won't produce higher quality teachers. Making the profession more attractive to quality, high-performing candidates will.

"With teacher pay so low, with teacher education so costly, what's happening is nobody's going into teaching," Skauge said.
In Michigan, at least 50 percent of new teachers quit within the first five years, Skauge said.
A 2014 report from the Alliance for Excellent Education found roughly 500,000 U.S. teachers either move or leave the profession each year, attrition that costs up to $2.2 billion annually.
"Teachers are being vilified just like the police department is," Skauge said. "It seems like we've lost appreciation for what teachers do. We act as if nobody's doing a good job and then we keep putting more and more on their plate."
To expand the teaching pool, the NCTQ recommends the state establish guidelines for alternate route programs and grant certification to teachers from other states who can demonstrate evidence of effectiveness or meet licensure test requirements.
But Skauge said alternate route programs that bring non-educators into teaching will not improve student learning. Effective classroom management and student engagement - not just content knowledge - must be formally studied and practiced, he said.
For better teacher retention, the council wants the state to support differential pay initiatives in both subject-shortage areas and high-needs schools.
Shortages among teachers, especially in math and science, is a growing national concern.
Skauge rejected the idea differential pay will reverse the trend.
"You shouldn't get paid more simply because there is a shortage in the particular area where you're teaching," Skauge said. "You've got to make the pay better for everybody."
But pay is not the primary appeal for prospective teachers, he added.
"I think what attracts people into teaching is respect and ... appreciation, and I think that we have to make (teaching) a profession again," Skauge said.
