Golden Apple Response to New IL Teacher Shortage Crisis Report

ILLINOIS (WBC/DANA COMM.) — The Illinois Association of Regional Superintendents recently issued their 2021 Illinois Educator Shortage Report. The report shows that Illinois is facing a devastating teacher shortage crisis, with 88% of school districts responding to the survey reporting they have a teacher shortage problem.

Golden Apple is a nonprofit that attempts to prepare future teachers to serve in schools and communities in need through both their Scholars Program and their Accelerators Program. Golden Apple’s long-running Scholars Program is a teacher preparation and tuition assistance program targeted toward high school seniors and freshman and sophomore college students in Illinois, and the newer Accelerators Program is a 15-month teacher residency and licensure program for career changers and college seniors not on a teaching path.

KesaThurman Stovall, Chief Program Officer of Golden Apple and a former Golden Apple Scholar herself says their nonprofit committed to preparing, supporting, and mentoring aspiring teachers, is committed to making a material difference in resolving this crisis

The report also showed the teacher shortage has gotten even worse in the last year. Last year’s report, which was conducted in October 2020, showed 77% of school districts saying they had a teacher shortage problem.
