LANSING, Mich. — The Michigan House passed a bill to pay student teachers for their classroom work.
The bill provides student teachers with a $90 per day stipend.
Under the proposal, teachers with experience who help guide them would receive $1,000.
Right now, student teaching is required to earn your in-state teaching certificate, but most districts don't pay students teachers.
That can make it harder to attract new teachers. The state is currently dealing with a teacher shortage.
This bill hopes to draw more teachers to the state.
The bill now heads to the state Senate after it received overwhelming approval in the House.
