Michigan Trying To Keep Teachers In State


Michigan may need to do a little extra homework to keep teachers in the state.

Teaching remains among Michigan's most popular college majors.

But 75% of the seven-thousand teachers that will be certified this year will not land jobs in the state.

Michigan colleges are producing a ton of elementary teachers.

But the state schools officials say there's a need for special education, secondary math and science and language arts teachers.

They say one way to get colleges to meet Michigan's teaching needs is by using scholarships to help channel students to different specializations.
