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.
Ultimately, the most recent teacher shortage report shows 5,328 under-qualified teachers in New York during the 2017-18 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.
