Cool interactive feature on California's teacher shortage

If you saw my story about the teacher shortage on Wednesday's paper, you'll know the issue  has a lot of people very concerned.

Also, you will remember I mention a study published by the Learning Policy Institute, led by Linda Darling-Hammond. The study predicts the problem could get worse if not tackled soon, and offers some possible solutions. You can find the executive summary here.

What I did not mention was that the study comes with a snazzy, interactive chart of "teacher shortage" indicators, with percentage of teachers older than 50 (30 percent in Monterey County) and the percentage of 'underqualified' teachers (3.5 percent).

You can find it here. Enjoy!
