Viewpoint Luncheon: Is Metro Milwaukee Running Out of Teachers?

The Public Policy Forum will soon release the third and final report in our Milwaukee Educator Series. The first two reports assessed the characteristics of teachers and school leaders in Metro Milwaukee. Our final report analyzes employment patterns as well as enrollment trends in local colleges of education and will inform policymakers on the dimensions of a possible teacher shortage. Join the Forum and our event partner - the Greater Milwaukee Committee - at a Viewpoint Luncheon that will explore potential threats to Metro Milwaukee's teacher workforce. We'll begin with a presentation of our new report by the Forum’s Senior Education Researcher, Joe Yeado. Then, we will hear from a panel of education stakeholders to obtain reaction and discuss potential solutions. Panelists: Dan Chanen, Chief Human Capital Officer, Milwaukee Public Schools Dr. Patricia Greco, Superintendent, School District of Menomonee Falls John Peacock, mathematics teacher, Ronald Wilson Reagan College Preparatory High School Dr. Freda Russell, Dean, College of Education & Leadership, Cardinal Stritch University
