Keeping Teachers In The Classroom And An Italian Heritage Festival On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, teaching is the career that all other careers are built on, but recently West Virginia has struggled to fill vacancies in classrooms. Chris Schulz continues our new radio series “Help Wanted: Understanding West Virginia’s Labor Force” by exploring the struggle to keep the state’s schools staffed.

Also, in this show, the 44th West Virginia Italian Heritage Festival is gearing up for a full weekend of activities this Labor Day holiday weekend. Caroline MacGregor reports.
