Bringing Back the Substitute Teacher


Examining substitute pay’s history and future

Each day more than 250,000 teachers are absent, but districts are only able to fill 54 percent of those absences, according to Education Week. And as COVID-19 continues to exacerbate the teacher vacancy and absentee crisis, the demand for substitute teachers has never been higher. 

But with the average substitute making just $100 a day and many opting not to return to the classroom, districts are finding it increasingly difficult to recruit and retain valuable teaching talent when they need it most. 

In this webinar, we:

  • Examine substitute teacher pay in the United States
  • Discuss how districts can address wage inequalities while adhering to budget constraints
  • Explore creative ways to attract high-quality and diverse substitute teaching talent
