Gov. Doug Ducey last week announced the Arizona Teachers’ Academy.  It promises free tuition at the state’s public universities for every year teachers teach in Arizona, and is meant to try to close the teacher shortage the state has had for the past several years.

With me to talk about how to deal with the shortage, is Carole Basile, dean of the Mary Lou Fulton Teacher’s College at ASU.
