Schools redefine role of subs
Many public school districts across the U.S. are making the decision to set new standards for substitute teaching. Currently, fewer than 10 percent of substitute teachers get any skills training. Only 42 percent go through an orientation. But that is changing.
The demands of the school day are altering the role of substitute teachers as placeholders or babysitters. More districts are training their subs in classroom management and instructional skills so a teacher's absence does not mean a lost day of learning.
