To combat the teacher shortage, California passed a resolution to accept teachers on provisional licenses. This means teachers hired through this program are not fully licensed in the state. “Between 2012 and 2019 the number of teachers in the state working with ‘substandard’ credentials increased from 4,724 to 13,912,” according to data from the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. With almost 14,000 teachers without licenses, students are not getting the expert teachers they deserve. Ultimately, the most recent teacher shortage report shows 24,029 under-qualified teachers in California during the 2018-19 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.
