TULARE, Calif. – The California Center on Teaching Careers (the Center), in partnership with TEACH and the Ad Council, has released a series of Public Service Advertisements (PSAs) designed to attract more candidates to the teaching profession. In a comprehensive campaign spanning TV, radio and social media, the PSAs will reach audiences across California to demonstrate the benefits of teaching through storytelling.
