Indiana Bill Aims To Recruit Teachers From Other Professions
Thursday, March 9, 2023

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana lawmakers are considering a bill that would provide scholarships to Hoosiers transitioning into teaching from other careers.

House Bill 1528 passed in the House unanimously and is now being considered by a Senate committee.

The bill would provide scholarships of up to $10,000 for Hoosiers who enroll in transition-to-teaching certification programs.

To be eligible, you would have to already hold a four-year degree and be employed by a school. You would also be required to commit to teaching in an Indiana school district for at least five years.

Indiana’s online education job board shows more than 1,400 open teaching positions.

School officials say they’ve seen more Hoosiers leaving the profession and fewer people coming in.
