Finding Farmland And Tackling School Staffing Shortages On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, K-12 schools in the state are experiencing a teacher shortage in all subjects, and the southern counties are feeling it the most. We have a conversation about this challenge with the West Virginia Department of Education, and we also look at possible solutions.

Also, in this show, as more farmers in Pennsylvania near retirement, the state is bracing for a shortage of agricultural workers. But for people who want to start their own farms, there’s no guarantee they’ll find land.
