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?

In a new documentary, REL Midwest and Detroit Public Television explore why certified teachers in Michigan aren’t teaching and what can be done to bring them back into the classroom.

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.

After today's documentary screening, we will have a live panel discussion - and you will have opportunity to ask your questions live to the panelists.

Here is a link to the study by REL Midwest, referenced in today's film and conversation: ies.ed.gov/ncee/edlabs/projects/project.asp?projectID=4618

Thank you to our panelists for joining us today! And thank you all for watching! You can share your questions for our panelists here in the comments.
