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.
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.
