The New York teacher shortage has increased year over year. News10 says, “enrollment in New York state’s teacher education programs has declined by 50.4 % since 2009.” A lack of education students turns into a lack of qualified teachers. COVID-19 has exacerbated the issue because more teachers are retiring early without eligible replacements.
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.
