Illinois is trying to stop a teacher shortage, and teachers leaving the state is only part of the problem. Derek Sieg and other former teachers talk about why they left the profession -- and what school districts and policymakers can do to stop it. It's the first of a 4-part series this week on Sound Ideas about the teacher shortage. Plus, Planned Parenthood of Illinois decides it might as well be hung for being a sheep as a lamb. Mary Cullen interviews a Planned Parenthood leader ahead of the Democrats Baldini Dinner. And Mayor Tari Renner drops by.
