Teacher shortage in Massachusetts

Massachusetts is facing a colossal teacher shortage. The Boston Fed estimates a need for 45,000 new teachers within the next decade. Additionally, districts have turned to emergency teaching licenses for relief by placing uncertified teachers in classes. WBUR states there are 5,600 teacher vacancies this year alone. Students deserve highly qualified teachers. Ultimately, the most recent teacher shortage report shows 4,961 underqualified teachers in Massachusetts during the 2021-22 school year.

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."
