New Jersey has teacher vacancies in several essential subjects. "Reported shortages for the 2020-21 school year span science, math, special education, world languages, career and technical education and English as a Second Language,” according to a U.S. Department of Education database. Ultimately, the most recent teacher shortage report shows 148 teacher vacancies plus 9,455 under-qualified teachers in New Jersey during the 2021-22 school year.
Some short-term solutions have been raised. "Fearing a potential teacher shortage this fall, two New Jersey lawmakers want to allow retired educators in ‘critical need’ subject areas to go back to work while still collecting their pension." This is unsustainable as the teacher shortage grows and retirees are unwilling to return.
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.
