Money to attract and retain teachers on the table
The Province is investing 2 million dollars to help rural communities attract and retain teachers.
It’s part of a rural education strategy aimed at finding long-term solutions for the unique challenges facing rural schools.
Finding teachers for rural communities is expected to get even more difficult now that the province has concluded a new agreement with the BC Teachers’ Federation.
A provincewide hiring drive is expected to add significantly to the recruitment challenges already faced by rural school districts.
