Seems to me I recall something about the month of September..... perhaps annual teacher hiring?


This is nice to see? Everything seems to move slowly but finally in the right direction?


Teaching jobs come back after four years of layoffs
By Annalyn Censky | – 3 hours ago.. .

After four years of layoffs, teaching jobs are finally coming back. Public school hiring rose this summer to its highest level in six years.

Local school districts added 79,000 education jobs this July through September, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That's the strongest summer hiring since 2006.

But even with the small hiring spurt, it's still not nearly enough to keep up with the growing number of students in American classrooms.

"The data suggest that at least we're not shedding a lot of teacher jobs any more. That's a really nice first step, but there's still so much to make up," said Heidi Shierholz, economist with the Economic Policy Institute.
