Mississippi Considers Temporary Teaching Licenses

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — Mississippi’s Department of Education is looking for a new way to give districts help with a statewide teacher shortage. The Department is reportedly considering creating a temporary teaching license that couldn’t be renewed more than three years. A spokesman for the Mississippi Association of Educators called the proposal a band-aid that does not address the core issue – teacher pay. Under the proposal, the requirements to maintain the teaching certificate would increase in years two and three, with the expectation of working towards full teacher certification.
