How SC school districts and universities are curbing the teacher shortage
Like other selected Upstate South Carolina colleges, Furman University has a teacher residency program that serves a critical role in shoring up a dwindling supply of teachers in the state. Higher education reporter Alexis Hamilton caught up with Furman’s Scott Henderson, the William R. Kenan Jr. Professor of Education, for an article appearing in The Greenville News. “Furman is a relatively significant pipeline. In other words, a significant number of our students go from our program into teaching positions in the Upstate or in Upstate public school districts,” Henderson said.
