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.”
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.
