School Districts Face Substitute Scarcity During Pandemic

Spectrum News 1 |

Scott DiMauro, the president of the Ohio Education Association, said the state is facing a significant substitute teacher shortage for the upcoming school year. 

“Even before the pandemic started, school districts were having difficulty filling substitute teaching positions,” said DiMauro. “It’s going to be a challenge. And if districts can’t find substitutes that they need, I think it’s going to pose a real challenge to maintain social distancing and keep schools open safely.”
