Dozens of Arizona Teachers Lack Bachelor's Degrees


Districts across Arizona say that the state's teacher shortage has gotten so bad that they need to hire educators who don't have a bachelor's degree. There are dozens of such teachers across the state, according to The Arizona Republic, which collected data from 162 school districts, which collectively educate about 80 percent of the state's public school students.

Those educators are employed through the state's emergency substitute certificate program, which allows anyone with a high school diploma or its equivalent to teach. In order to hire these teachers, school districts or charter schools must certify that that they are experiencing an "emergency employment situation."
