Thank goodness that unlike some other media outlets in New Jersey nj.com is willing to publish opinions that challenge New Jersey’s public school status quo. In response to a teacher shortage, Sunlight asks whether New Jersey’s public school system represents an appealing job opportunity for today’s young college grads. They value mobility and flexibility, but our school system is rigid and inflexible. Moreover, it disfavors new, younger teachers. If New Jersey needs more teacher candidates, then we should consider making teaching more appealing to today’s young college grads.
