The Alabama teacher shortage affects the quality of education students receive. A report from the Alabama State Superintendent states, “More than 1,700 teachers are teaching the core subjects of math, science, history, and social studies in grades seven through 12 without the proper certifications." About 30% of teachers have no background in the subject they are teaching. Students deserve expert teachers. Ultimately, the most recent teacher shortage report shows over 3,000 teacher vacancies plus 5,046 under-qualified teachers in Alabama during the 2021-22 school year.
In April 2021, Frontline Education surveyed 1,200 district leaders to discover that two out of three respondents reported having teacher shortages in their schools. This is a record high since launching the survey in 2015.
