@willichan The unfortunate reality of the public education here in the U.S. is that in many school systems, teachers are grossly underpaid. I have heard of teachers having to go on SNAP (government program to help people buy food) and with the constant cuts to education budgets, teachers often have to dip into their own paychecks to buy pencils, notebooks, and other baseline classroom materials. They are being asked to do more and more with less and less resources. Thus, due to the the poor pay and the poor support teachers receive, many who want to be teachers go into other fields and unfortunately, those that do become teachers tire of not doing the job they were hired to do, i.e. having to be parents, social workers, and psychotherapists to the students in their classrooms (due to poverty/hunger/family problems) before any educating can be done. The difficulties of attracting and keeping talent in the field has been going on for a long time. Turnover puts pressure on the schools and often have to hire out of desperation - "anybody is better than nobody". It is a "tough sell" to ask someone to go $100+ into debt for a college education only to get out and be poorly paid in a system that is poorly funded.
