Abstract
This Note advocates for comprehensive educational reform that takes into account the characteristics of the teacher labor market and the implications of the Cobweb Model. Part II of this Note introduces the concept of a teacher shortage, explains issues contributing to the current teacher shortage, and analyzes OPS’ attempt at solving the teacher shortage. Part II of this Note also summarizes the economic theorem known as the Cobweb Model and its applicability to the teacher labor market. Part III of this Note analyzes common attempts to solve the teacher shortage, identifies how these attempts ignore the implications of the Cobweb Model, and argues these measures are ineffective in creating a long-term solution to teacher shortages. Lastly, using the successful case study of Ontario, Canada, this Note makes suggestions for policy implementation in the United States going forward.
