Over the next few months I'm going to be exploring the millennial educator and what they want and need from school districts. The US is in a nation wide teacher shortage so knowing how to hire, onboard, and retain the millennial educator is going to become even more important to keep your school district attracting the best educators out there. 
A new survey released from ADP looks at what millennials (age 18-35) and right behind them “Generation Z” (for lack of a better name at the moment), want from their job and employers. Quartz had a nice write up of the research and I was drawn to this both in the report and in the write up.
