Tim Sass recently spoke with Peter Goff about the work that Sass has conducted on teacher loan forgiveness as a way to improve the labor force in education. You can watch the interview here: You're Forgiven: Tim Sass on Teacher Loan Forgiveness. Could loan forgiveness raise the level of personnel entering teaching? Let us know what you think below.

Sass clarifies that teacher shortages are not across the board but rather concentrated in certain subject areas and locations. What policies do you think would help recruit and retain teachers in the areas with most need, like secondary math and science, special education and high poverty schools?
