Oklahoma School Districts Experience Teacher Shortages

Posted: Updated:

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla._Teacher shortages are creating problems for school districts across Oklahoma.

Instead of shortages mainly in math, science and special education, schools are grappling with vacancies in all departments and grade levels.

Large and small districts alike are all struggling to recruit new educators.

Educators say pay is to blame. The state pays its teachers some of the lowest salaries in the nation. And low pay creates obstacles for schools to attract and retain teachers.
