Department of Education Launches TEACH Campaign

Over the course of the next 10 years, America will need to fill as many as 1.8 million teaching positions. The Department of Education projects that up to a quarter of current teachers will leave the profession in the next few years, many due to retirement. In an effort to fill these positions, the Department of Education has announced the TEACH Campaign – a recruitment campaign aimed at increasing the number, quality and diversity of people seeking to become teachers, and to raise the profile of the teaching profession. As part of this campaign, the Department has also unveiled a new website,, which they describe as “a revolutionary new website dedicated to providing information, testimonials, and resources for students and prospective teachers – including a new interactive ‘path to teaching’ tool designed to help individuals chart their course to becoming a teacher.”
