Ensuring that Mississippi’s educational system stays strong


If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a teacher, it’s time to make the dream a reality.

Many school districts already faced a teacher shortage when COVID-19 struck, and now the need for teachers has become even more urgent.

In response to challenges posed by the pandemic, Mississippi is temporarily waiving entry-test requirements for students applying to enter teacher education and administration preparation programs. This is good news for service-minded professionals who are thinking about a teaching career but may struggle with entrance requirements.

Last year, MASS stepped up our efforts to respond to the teacher shortage with our statewide Unleash Possible campaign. We believe the temporary policy revision along with others will encourage more Mississippians to pursue teaching careers and help strengthen our teacher workforce for the future.
