Teacher Shortage in Montana

Montana’s teacher shortage is reaching critical levels. Rural schools have an even bigger issue due to how physically remote they are. According to Montana Free Press, “Popular schools lose about a fifth of their teachers each year — more than double the national attrition rate — and principals have struggled to fill vacancies across most grade levels and subjects. For about 1 in 10 positions there, the district last year reported hiring people with no formal training who needed an emergency waiver from the state to teach. The problem is the same across Montana — where 65% of rural schools in remote settings reported difficulty filling vacancies, compared with 35% of non-rural schools.”

The 75 reports, "State Superintendent Elsie Arntzen said the state could see 1,000 teacher vacancies going into the [2023-24] school year — or roughly one in 10 positions." Montana students deserve a good education.

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."
