Teacher Shortage in North Carolina

North Carolina is facing a teacher shortage, especially in elementary and secondary classes. The Public School Forum of North Carolina states, “7,115 teachers out of the 94,672 teachers employed during the 2018-19 school year are no longer employed in North Carolina public schools, resulting in a statewide attrition rate of 7.5%. In 2020, this number increased due to the pandemic and legislation which removed medicaid benefits from retiring teachers.”

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.
