Round-up: Nyland considered for permanent job, pension policy could be behind sub shortage

Seattle school board considers Nyland for permanent job: The Seattle school board is planning to vote early next year on a proposal to give interim superintendent Larry Nyland an offer to remain in his job through June 2017. Nyland, who previously served as superintendent in Marysville, came out of retirement four months ago to take the place of José Banda.

Substitute shortage could be a result of state pension policy: State lawmakers are considering changing a controversial 2007 law that makes hefty cuts to the pensions of certain retired teachers who work for a public employer. Currently, 1,003 retired teachers statewide cannot substitute for a single day without losing their pension for an entire month.

Mississippi schools sue state over funding (NPR): Mississippi routinely ranks near the bottom of the 50 states when it comes to per-pupil spending and student achievement.
