Michigan’s teacher vacancies are extreme, with open positions in every grade level for nearly every subject. An average of 8% of teachers leave the profession each year, leaving more unfilled classrooms. Additionally, students seeking teacher certifications has decreased an average of 10% year over year, meaning more teachers are leaving and fewer are studying education to replace them. Ultimately, the most recent teacher shortage report shows 527 teacher vacancies plus 885 under-qualified teachers in Michigan during the 2019-20 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.
