The Kansas teacher shortage reflects a national trend.  When classes started this fall, Kansas was 612 teachers short, up 19 percent from last year. Some positions still remain open.

Furthermore, the cost of recruiting high-quality teachers has risen and become controversial.

A recent furor involves the cost and effectiveness of a Kansas contract with the not-for-profit teacher recruiting and training organization, Teach for America.
