The teacher shortage in Kansas is an ever-growing crisis. The latest numbers from the Kansas State Department of Education for Fall 2018 state that 612 teaching positions remain unfilled by a qualified teacher. That's up from the 513 vacant positions from the same time in 2017. Every year, the teacher vacancy numbers grow with no end in sight. Ultimately, the most recent teacher shortage report shows 1, 200 teacher vacancies plus 746 under-qualified teachers in Kansas 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.
