Franken introduces bill to help teacher shortages


U.S. Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., on Tuesday helped introduce legislation that would reduce teacher shortages in rural Minnesota and in Indian Country, improving education for rural and Native American students across Minnesota, a news release said.

"Every kid should have access to a world-class education, no matter where they live," said Franken. "But educators and students in rural Minnesota and in Indian Country often face unique challenges that schools in metro areas don't. One of the major challenges I often hear about is that frankly there aren't enough teachers in those communities. These two bills would help address that, and I'm going to be working to pass them into law so that we can get more teachers to work in these communities to ensure kids receive the education they deserve."
