Illinois Senate Democrats are rolling out a plan designed to address a teacher shortage in the state. Lawmakers introduced a number of legislative measures, including a bill that would remove the number of days for short-term substitute teachers to teach in the classroom, allowing them to spend more time in the classroom if needed. Another measure would provide retention bonuses of four-thousand-dollars per year for certain qualified teachers.
