Teachers Sound Alarm On Growing Problems In Schools

On Teacher Appreciation Day, three teachers told “Fox & Friends” that the nation’s schools are facing growing problems with staff shortages, behavioral issues by students and moral dilemmas about politics in the classroom.
“I think the biggest issue we’re having right now is there’s a national teacher shortage,” New York elementary school teacher Brook Ooten told host Ainsley Earhardt.
“Three-quarters of U.S. states now report that they are short on teachers. We have teachers leaving the profession in droves and I think that puts a lot of stress on the teachers that are in the classroom teaching. They’re not as well staffed, classes are overcrowded, and that’s a big stressor on teachers today,” she said.
