How Did This Happen

Lost of news pieces about teachers which don't talk to a single current former or current teacher is part of it!.
The teacher shortage in America has hit crisis levels — and school officials everywhere are scrambling to ensure that, as students return to classrooms, someone will be there to educate them.
Imagine the nerdrage coming off journalists if a similar piece was published about journalism which quoted no journalists!!

The piece is ok generally, but "talking to one current teacher or a teacher who recently quit" seems like a reasonable starting place! A single "why did you leave the profession?" quote!

Related: all the people who screamed about students having their lives ruined because of lazy teachers during covid are pretty quiet about the "no teacher" situation now!
