Disappearing Educators


Bowling Green State University is partnering with higher education institutions and state and community leaders to host the Northwest Ohio teacher Shortage Summit on Friday, Nov. 4 from 9 a.m. to noon. 

The summit is also collaborating with the Ohio Department of Higher Education, the Ohio Department of Education and several other universities to identify collaborative solutions to the ongoing teacher shortage nationwide. BGSU is one of five regional summits to be held across Ohio and requires registration in order to attend

The summit will work collectively with education, community, business and government leaders to develop solutions for attracting and retaining teachers in the northwest Ohio region. Participants will also raise awareness of the implications of the shortage, including the direct effect on economic vitality and quality of life. 

Dean of the BGSU College of Education and Human Development, Dr. Dawn Shinew explained how every student deserves a teacher who supports their education and that solutions can only be found by working together. 

“With an ongoing shortage of qualified educators in classrooms, we must all work together to develop solutions to solve this problem that affects every community,” Shinew said. 

BGSU is currently one of Ohio’s largest producers of teachers and actively addressing the teacher shortage and is taking multiple steps to keep educators in classrooms.
