tem of teacher recruitment in Italy, with the introduction of a GPS algorithm by former Minister of Education Lucia Azzolina. The algorithm evaluates teachers' CVs and preferences in location and class to match them with schools' vacancies. If the algorithm finds a better matching candidate, it selects them instead. With the rise in short-term contracts for teachers, the digitized and automatic procedure aims to simplify and improve teacher recruitment. However, despite the algorithm, the recruitment is not satisfying schools' needs, leaving hundreds of classroom positions vacant and affecting the educational progress of students all over Italy.
