Hawaii’s teacher shortage continues. The Hawaii Department of Education has launched an ambitious social media campaign to recruit up to 500 teachers for hard to fill positions as science, math, and special education teachers. One of the main forces driving teachers to leave Hawaii is the high cost of living. Coupled with a lower pay scale than many mainland U.S. states, teachers are deciding to leave our shores for places where the cost of living is lower.
