Minnesota is struggling to hire fully licensed teachers for their classrooms, so they are turning to those with provisional licenses. According to Star Tribune in the 2019-20 school year, “There were more than 57,300 teachers with professional licenses not working in the classroom — roughly 50% of the state's corps of licensed teachers.” Those certified teachers have taken jobs outside the school system and are being replaced with under qualified instructors. According to the Minnesota Biennial Report, 70% of districts reported being significantly affected by the teacher shortage.
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.
