New Mexico teacher vacancies are increasing. Unfilled positions have nearly doubled within the last year. According to research from New Mexico State University, “Initial analysis suggests New Mexico had more than 1,000 openings this fall, up from 570 last year.” Critical need areas include Elementary and Special Education. Students are not receiving educational instruction from qualified teachers. Ultimately, the most recent teacher shortage report shows 1,048 teacher vacancies plus 726 under-qualified teachers in New Mexico 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.
