Together with the Michigan Department of Education, REL Midwest found that about 61,000 teachers are certified to teach in the state but choose not to. Why?

Join us to watch our latest documentary “Teachers who aren’t teaching: Who are they and how do we get them back?”, followed by a live panel discussion.
