"Like many states, we do have a shortage of teachers in specific subject areas and certain schools and geographies," said Hannah Dietsch, assistant state superintendent of education for talent in the state Department of Education. Ultimately, the most recent teacher shortage report shows 2,520 teacher vacancies plus 17,151 under-qualified teachers in Louisiana during the 2020-21 school year.
“One possible solution is to make it more lucrative for retired teachers to resume their duties,” said state Rep. Larry Bagley, R-Stonewall, a certified elementary school teacher himself. “When they retire and leave, replacing them is problematic at best.”
Teacher Shortage reports claim, "Based on news and state reports, we estimate that there are at least 55,000 vacant teacher positions in the United States."
“The teachers I had this year were awesome. The teachers stayed on task, worked very hard with our students, and explained when the students did not understand. It was just a great semester. Thank you!”
