Shit pay, no job security, regularly being lambasted by senior government officials, wasting money outsourcing core functions? It's a total mystery why finding teachers is hard to do.
The private firm that scored a $34 million contract with the Philadelphia School District to staff substitute-teaching jobs - and promised that 75 percent of those positions would be filled on Day One - has fallen far short of its goals so far.

On Tuesday, the first day of school, it had filled only 11 percent of the jobs.

That left 477 city classrooms without teachers.

I assume (I don't know!) that they actually have to pay the people if they fill the jobs, so probably best they don't because profit.

Everything is stupid and horrible.
