Ep 5: Back to the Staffing Surge with Ben Scafidi

Hosted byEdChoice|

Our latest report—“Back to the Staffing Surge”—measures US public school employment growth versus student growth as well as teacher salary fluctuations and student outcomes over the past 65 years using publicly available data that state departments of education annually report to the U.S. Department of Education. The results were shocking.

Tune into this podcast where EdChoice Director of State Research and Policy Analysis Drew Catt sat down with “Back to the Staffing Surge” author Dr. Ben Scafidi, professor and director of the Education Economics Center at Kennesaw State University, to discuss what inspired this research, key findings and what they could mean for teachers and policymakers.
