New campus-wide task force takes on state’s teacher shortage

Education grads Preparing future teachers for the classroom is one of Sacramento State’s proudest roles, and a newly formed campus-wide task force is exploring how the University can do the job even better while helping to tackle California’s current shortage of K-12 educators.

The task force is looking at ways to improve teacher preparation at Sac State and develop a commitment across the campus to training the region’s educators. Faculty from all seven academic colleges are involved in the effort.

“We have a lot of expertise, and we make really significant contributions, across all fields, to the region,” says Pia Wong, associate dean of Education and task force co-chair. “We’ve got to prepare more teachers, but we also have to prepare teachers who have the knowledge and skills to stay and thrive in the profession.”
