Teacher Shortage in Oregon

Oregon’s teacher shortage has caused the state to take drastic measures placing underqualified teachers in the classroom. ABC 7 reports, “Hoping to help curb what officials are calling an ‘extraordinary shortage’ of teachers across the state, the Oregon Teacher Standards and Practices Commission announced a new rule temporarily dropping the bachelor's degree requirement to become licensed in some cases.” Without qualified teachers, students’ education will suffer.

Teacher Shortage reports claim, "Based on news and state reports, we estimate that there are at least 55,000 vacant teacher positions in the United States."
