Why Are People Not Pursuing Careers in Education?

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — Educators and administrators are doing their part to head off what could prove to be a catastrophic national teaching shortage.

A culture shift may also be partly to blame for teachers leaving the profession, says Carlotta Sheets, human resources supervisor at the Trumbull County Educational Service Center.

Sheets says people in the workforce have moved away from the lifelong career ideology and are no longer settling in at a company for 40 years. She notes that people today look to have several careers in their lifetimes.
