In February 2022 Mississippi Today reported, “The Mississippi Department of Education estimates that 54 districts within the state are experiencing ‘critical’ shortages in special education, STEM, elementary education, and foreign language fields, with over 2,000 unfilled positions across the state. However, Mississippi's inability to calculate the exact number of teacher vacancies through compiling data serves as a scapegoat for legislators to ignore the problem of inequitable education. In turn, the education gap is widened as students in low-income areas like the Mississippi Delta are supplemented with uncertified teachers or long-term substitutes.” Ultimately, the most recent teacher shortage report shows 3,036 teacher vacancies in Mississippi during the 2021-22 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.
