According to Andrew Ujifusa at Education Week, last week, Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) introduced the Preparing and Retaining Education Professionals (PREP) Act, which “aims to address both teacher and principal shortages by broadening the definition of a high-need district under the Every Student Succeeds Act to include rural districts with educator shortages, as well as districts lacking teachers in specific subject areas, such as teaching English learners, science, math, engineering, and career and technical education.”
