Lampitt to Address Teacher Resource Shortage


Assembly Education Chair Pamela Lampitt (D-Burlington/Camden) will be joined Thursday morning, May 11th, by  Assembly colleagues and education stakeholders to announce the introduction of a package of bills addressing ongoing shortages in the educator workforce.

New Jersey’s teachers are arguably its most indispensable human resource. Our education systems routinely rank among the best, if not the top, in the nation. The educators at the front of our classrooms are the foundation of the whole system. Yet New Jersey is facing the same shortage of teachers and support professionals that plagues school systems across the United States.

The bill package represents the culmination of over seven months of collaboration between teachers, administrators, parents, students, and legislators. The sponsors will speak to how these bills will break down identifiable barriers that have slowly developed in multiple areas over the last decade or more.

The event will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Thursday, May 11th, in the New Jersey Statehouse Room 109. The event is open to the public and the media is encouraged to attend.
